Our study program was awarded by the British journal Nuclear Engineering International to be one of the five best programs (duration more than 6 months). We are proud to have been awarded in the second year.
Recently, we have been awarded the certification of the German Society of Medical Physics for the focus field "Medical Pyhsics".
Our program is really international: Students from 21 countries all around the world have been registered, so far: Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Germany, Hongkong, India, Iran, Jordan, Luxemburg, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela. We hope to see students from more countries in the future.
The Master of Science in Nuclear Applications program provides students with a solid scientific basis, enabling them to use scientific and engineering methods to analyze technical procedures and develop practical solutions while taking into consideration related areas outside their specific field of study.
During the program, the students acquire wide-ranging, integrated knowledge and understanding of the scientific and technical fundamentals of nuclear science and technology.
They have at their disposal a critical understanding of the basic theories, principles and methods dealt with during their studies, and are in a position to broaden this knowledge independently.
Moreover, students gain the ability to collect and interpret data and to infer scientifically-based judgements from it, as well as to implement appropriate solutions that take into account social, scientific and ethical issues.
Students learn to formulate and defend their own opinions and solutions and to exchange information, ideas, problems, and solutions with experts and lay people, as well as work responsibility in a team.
These wide-ranging skills ensure flexibility in career opportunities and form an ideal basis for the lifelong learning skills that are indespensible in modern professional life.
