Radiation and Environmental Protection
This programme will give you a thorough grounding in the radiation and environmental protection aspects of nuclear physics. This includes in-depth knowledge of radiation protection and showing you how the technical and organisational procedures of the discipline may be applied to the broader concept of environmental protection. The substantial practical element of this programme enables you to relate taught material to real-world applications. Formal lectures are complemented with work in specialist radiation laboratories that were recently refurbished as part of a £1m upgrade to our facilities. Here you will work with a wide range of radioactive sources and radiation detectors. There is also an extended project in the spring and an eleven-week MSc dissertation project in the summer.
Example module listing: radiation physics; radiation measurement; nuclear power and non-ionising radiation; introduction to biology and radiation biology; radiation protection; environmental physics and environmental protection; extended group project; radiation laboratory skills; research project and dissertation.
Assessment methods include a dissertation.
