About

Are you interested in solving environmental challenges due to the nuclear industry and waste management? There is an urgent need for university-trained candidates within nuclear sciences, including radioecology. The Master of Science in Radioecology at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) is the one for you.

Overview

You will gain knowledge about:

  • radioecology
  • behaviour of radionuclides in the environment
  • impact and risk assessment based on radiochemistry and radiation protection
  • the nuclear industry and waste management
  • project management
  • research methods. 

Skills in these areas are required not only to deal with currently installed nuclear capacity and decommissioned facilities, but also to meet the needs presented by likely new build nuclear installations. The first year provides basic course modules as well as the initiating of the research project. The second year is dedicated to experiments, data, collection and analysis, i.e. finalizing the master thesis. The Master of Science in Radioecology at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) modules will be held at NMBU with support from collaborating European universities.
