System message

The doctoral degree program is a follow-up to the completed master's degree programs such as nuclear engineering, dosimetry, ionising radiation or nuclear chemistry. Thanks to the broad scope of profiling courses also graduate students of the other branches of study with the focus on engineering, chemistry, physics or graduate students of the branches of study with the emphasis on nuclear safety and security with sufficient knowledge of physics, nuclear physics, mathematics and chemistry may apply for this study program.  

The graduate's profile consists of broad knowledge of the safe operation of the nuclear installations and sources of ionising radiation, safe usage of nuclear materials and forensic analysis of such materials. Considering graduate's subject of research and topic of the dissertation, graduates will become expert on:

  • safety and security of nuclear installations, which includes, e.g. construction and operation of nuclear installations (for commercial and research use), nuclear materials and their distribution in such nuclear installations, nuclear safety, emergency preparedness, physical protection of nuclear installations and especially synergy of safety and security of nuclear installations,
  • safety and security of sources of ionising radiation, calculations of the distribution of ionising radiation, effects of radiation on the human body and response of detectors of ionising radiation, external and internal radiation dose monitoring, assessment of ionising radiation effects on living organisms, principles of radiation protection, emergency preparedness regarding manipulation with sources of ionising radiation, detection systems used for localisation of ionising radiation sources and monitoring.,
  • forensic analysis of nuclear materials especially connected with instrumental and radiochemical methods and analytical methods using ionising radiation for nuclear forensic analysis and forensic analysis of dual-use materials,
  • principles of cybersecurity of nuclear installations and sources of ionising radiation, development of secured hardware and software, cryptologic principles and means of cyberattack detection, administration of the secured IT systems, analysis of the cyberattacks from the view of hackers, simulations of possible threats.
