We cover basic radiation principles, the use of detection systems and associated instrumentation applications, and modelling. There’s a strong focus on practicals and laboratory-based techniques.
You’ll be able to carry out a project, often in industry, making you even more employable in sectors such as nuclear power, medicine, environmental protection, oil and mining, and health and safety.
The Radiometrics - Instrumentation and Modelling programme from University of Liverpool consists of a number of one-week modules which you can select to best meet your needs. These modules are organised into four groups:-
- Project and Dissertation.
For your MSc you must complete your chosen modules and one major project to a value of 180 credits. Diploma (120 credits) and Certificate (60 credits) may also be available if you don’t want to submit a dissertation.
Past Physics postgraduates have begun careers in academia and other public or private research environments, in industry (for example in the nuclear and nuclear related industries), in financial services, health services, the scientific civil service and further education both in the UK and abroad.
