About

Over two years on this Nuclear Science degree 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. 

Overview

Knowledge of nuclear science is increasingly important across diverse fields, from pure scientific endeavours through to medical physics, industrial processes, mining, security, defence and policy development. The Australian National University is the only university in Australia that offers postgraduate education in nuclear science and is the ideal location to pursue an advanced degree in this growing field.

The Nuclear Science 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.

Careers

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.
