Radiation and Nuclear Technologies


Course objectives
Objective: To provide an overview of radiation and nuclear technologies and their applications in modern
The course provides an overview of nuclear and radiation applications in modern society. It is delivered in the
form of a series of modules. Module topics cover fundamentals of nuclear and radiation science, fuel cycle,
radiation sources, radiation detection, and radiation applications.
The course also provides an overview of safety and quality fundamentals and their applications in nuclear
systems and technologies. This includes an introduction to nuclear reactors and principle of their operation,
safety management & culture, defense in depth, safety analysis, human performance and quality management.

Specific course goals include:

Exploring careers in nuclear/radiological and health physics
Atomic nuclei and its structure
Environmental radioactivity
General principles of radiation machines
Survey on radiation detection methodologies
Overview of fission and fusion processes
Discussions on radioactive waste
Medical and Industrial use of radiation
Nuclear power systems and technologies (Nuclear reactors)
Principles of CANDU reactor
Nuclear fuel cycle
Safety management concepts and safety culture
Defense in depth concepts and relationships to reactor design
Control, cool, contains concepts and safety design approaches
Practice human performance and factors related to nuclear technologies & systems
Quality management and best practices
