During the Nuclear Science (Advanced) program at the Australian National University, you will study the fundamentals and applications of nuclear science, including materials analysis, dating techniques, nuclear medicine, and nuclear energy.
The degree is a mix of coursework and projects, comprising individual and group-based research. You will develop the scientific background you need for informed debate on nuclear issues, without advocating a particular position.
You will have access to the cutting-edge equipment in the laboratories of the Australian Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility, with many opportunities to undertake laboratory-based training, as well as access to academics who are at the forefront of research in basic and applied nuclear science.
Some examples of where our graduates have found themselves include: research roles, both fundamental (university) and applied (medical/industrial); regulatory roles in the commercial (mining) and government (radiation protection, customs, security) sectors; and analyst and policy roles in government.
Our graduates occupy senior roles across a range of private companies and government departments.
