Course Description

The Department of Physics has one of the largest nuclear and applied radiation physics research groups in the UK. This MSc builds on our strong international reputation in detector physics and technology, and our existing excellent links with industry and with government institutes. These companies and institutes are in areas such as radiation physics, environmental monitoring and detector technology. The MSc Radiation Detection and Instrumentation programme provides training and expertise in the use of radiation detectors, instrumentation techniques and data processing. It covers applications in a range of fields including medical physics, nuclear and particle physics, astronomy and homeland security. Industrial sectors that use radiation detection include medical imaging, security and baggage scanning, the nuclear power industry and defence. Also research fields such as nuclear physics, high-energy physics and space science all rely on radiation detectors. Modules ? Radiation Physics ? Radiation Laboratories ? Radiation Measurement ?
