FST Postgraduate


Nuclear science fields cover the topics on changes and reactions at the nucleus level of the element; the origin and sources of various natural and man-made radiations; the effects on matter, environment and living organisms; safety aspects; law and regulations involving the usage of the nuclear technology for the benefits of mankind. Besides those areas, nuclear security and safeguard were also being part of the areas that can be studied due to global concern around the world. The discipline also integrates the knowledge from past, current and future applications of the nuclear technology in Malaysia and worldwide such as in medical, manufacturing, power generation, food and agriculture, non-destructive tests, environmental research, and consumer products.
