    Manchester’s Nuclear Technology Management programme (N-PDP) web-based 'distance-learning' part-time course is run in six-month’s long modules. A few days at the University are required at the start of each module, followed by individual assignment work with university support by webinar and email. N-PDP is based upon a partnership with international companies. New build, operations and decommissioning are represented by the mature students currently in the programme. The teaching draws on speakers with long experience of nuclear projects and the Dalton Nuclear Institute’s wide range of research between the university and the industry. N-PDP runs in parallel with the School’s long-established Project Management Professional Development Programme (PM-PDP) so that delegates on the nuclear programme can take a module from that programme.
