Nuclear Science Programme

Nuclear Science is a part of science which exploits the use of natural and man-made radiation for the well-being of human life. It is a multi-discipline programme which needs a strong basic understanding of physics, chemistry, and biology as well as mathematics. Basically Nuclear Science covers the changes and reactions at the nucleus level of the element. Student enrolled in this programme will learnt the origin and sources of various natural and man-made radiations; the ef ects on matter, environment and living organism; safety aspects; law and regulations involving the usage of the technology for the benefits of mankind. The current and future applications of the technology in Malaysia and worldwide such as in medical, manufacturing, power generation, food and agriculture, Non-destructive test, environmental research and consumer products will be covered.
