The program prepares students on Obninsk campus of INPhE.

Description:

The Master’s Program is aimed at the training graduates in radiation ecology and radiation protection who will be able to work successfully in the fields of nuclear engineering and non-power applications of nuclear and radiation technologies.

The Master’s Program is an education program for master degree in nuclear physics and technologies. It includes an academic and practical training to form knowledge, skills and expertize in basic nuclear engineering with an emphasis on radiation protection of human and the environment.

The graduates have a basic knowledge in nuclear physics and engineering as well as  professional knowledge and expertize in the field of radiation ecology and radiation protection. It covers a number of interconnected topics, including radiation dosimetry and protection, environmental safety of nuclear fuel cycle, instrumentation for radiation measurements, radiobiological effect in living matter, radiation chemistry, geochemistry of radioisotopes, radiation monitoring, radioactive waste management, emergency preparedness, etc.

A unique advantage of the program is a balanced integration of the fundamental technical education with training modules. Training practice is based on Resource Center of the University (the Obninsk branch). To advance and masterize the knowledge and skills, students are involved in up-to-date research activities being realized under the supervision of highly qualified university staff as well as experienced professionals from the Obninsk-based research institutions and enterprises

Career opportunities:

Future career can be associated with

  • nuclear industry and nuclear fuel cycle
  • radiological control in nuclear power plants and other enterprises
  • supervising administrative bodies in radiation and environmental safety
  • agencies / departments of radiation protection and safety
  • radiation and environmental safety in non-nuclear industry (oil and gas, mining, construction industry, etc.)
  • decommissioning of nuclear and radiation facilities
  • radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management.
