Introduction

Learn how to survey, monitor, and control radiation exposure for a career in the nuclear industry.

The two-year Applied Nuclear Science and Radiation Safety Ontario College Diploma program is the only program of its kind in Canada. In this program, you learn to monitor radiation levels and implement preventive measures critical to ensuring the safety of employees and members of the public and providing for the protection of the environment.

Learn to effectively complete important tasks focusing on radiation safety, such as detecting and measuring radiation levels, mitigating contamination hazards, and providing guidance and information to personnel to control contamination and minimize radiation exposure.

Gain a theoretical and practical understanding of nuclear operations fundamentals, radiation detection, and measurement, waste management, decontamination procedures, and incident assessments. Learn how detection instrumentation operates and the proper techniques for detecting radiation and contamination. Your courses focus on regulatory frameworks and compliance with internationally accepted radiation protection principles.

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op work term are subject to availability and academic eligibility. Please note admission to the co-op program does not guarantee a co-op placement.
