Course description

Radiometrics: Instrumentation and Modelling

This one-year full-time taught MSc programme (or up to six years part-time) will equip you for a career in any industry involving radiation and radiation detectors.

We cover basic radiation principles, the use of detection systems and associated instrumentation applications, and modelling. There’s a strong focus on practicals and laboratory-based techniques.

You’ll be able to carry out a project, often in industry, making you even more employable in sectors such as nuclear power, medicine, environmental protection, oil and mining, and health and safety.

The programme consists of a number of one-week modules which you can select to best meet your needs. These modules are organised into four groups:-

  • Foundation
  • Basic
  • Applied
  • Project and Dissertation.

This course is also available as a part-time over a period of up to 6 years
