Doctoral program Safety and Security of nuclear installations and forensics analyses of nuclear materials and its scientific and research activities are focused on safety and security of nuclear installations, nuclear materials and sources of ionising radiation and their links to safety and forensics methods in the field of nuclear science and engineering. The study is very closely linked with scientific and research activities of individual departments in which students are highly involved.

A unique feature of the program is the scope of the safety of nuclear installations, nuclear materials, materials of dual-use and sources of ionising radiation and its connections to safety, mainly in the field of emergency preparedness and analytical methods applied in nuclear forensic analysis. Such connections between the safety, security, accident prevention and analytical methods used in nuclear forensic analysis with many synergy effects significantly differentiate this study program from existing study programs, and it will create possibilities for highly specialised education for students not only from the Czech Republic but also for students from regions of central Europe. This study program even has an ambition of global reach.

The target group of the described doctoral program consists mainly of graduate students of master's degree programs in the fields of nuclear science and engineering, chemistry, physics with a focus on nuclear engineering, nuclear power engineering, nuclear installations, radiation protection, nuclear chemistry, radioanalytical chemistry, analytical forensic methods applied in chemistry and graduate students of master's degree programs focused on nuclear safeguard, Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, nuclear terrorism, etc.
