Descrizione

Il Master universitario di II livello in Tecnologie Nucleari e delle Radiazioni Ionizzanti (TNRI) forma specialisti di alto livello tecnico-scientifico e manageriale in grado di operare sul mercato nazionale ed internazionale nel campo dell&rsquoapplicazione delle tecnologie nucleari e nell&rsquoambito delle attività nucleari (essenzialmente &ldquonon power&rdquo).

Il programma del Master copre le principali specializzazioni nel campo delle attività nucleari non mirate alla produzione di energia ed in particolare:
 
  • le applicazioni industriali e medicali delle radiazioni ionizzanti
  • la produzione di radioisotopi e di radio-farmaci per medicina nucleare
  • i metodi e i sistemi di controllo della radioattività nell&rsquoambiente
  • le tecniche analitiche nucleari applicate a vari settori produttivi(industriale e agro-alimentare) e alla ricerca
  • la gestione dei rifiuti radioattivi
  • la radioprotezione applicata a sorgenti radiogene di varia natura ed impiego (il curriculum del Master copre il programma didattico di formazione professionale previsto per sostenere l&rsquoesame di abilitazione ad Esperto Qualificato ex D. Lgs. 230/95)
  • la dismissione di impianti nucleari
  • l&rsquoimplementazione di sistemi di gestione integrati per impianti ed per attività nucleari
  • le metodologie per la valutazione e gestione del rischio da radiazioni ionizzanti e del rischio nucleare
  • la sicurezza (security) nucleare e delle sorgenti radioattive.
