This master aims at offering a good trainning to the students in the
design and construction of high-technology instrumentation, used in
particle accelerators, in nuclear power stations, radiotherapy and
industrial applications, and scientific instrumentation devoted to
This master has a strong practical trainning part. In the course of the
master, the students will carry out projects in the laboratories at the
University of Huelva and in collaborating facilities. In this way, the
students will be familiar with radiation detectors, dosimetry,
particles accelerators, distribution and production of electric power,
etc. Therefore it intends to give a strong background to the students.
Some aspects of special relevance are the following:
General aspects of the design and construction of
instrumentation, i.e. fundamentals of nuclear engineering, nuclear
instrumentation, control systems and automatic, power electronics, and
Design and construction of particle accelerators and
Technology and instrumentation related to the production,
distribution and control of electrical power.
Risk assessments associated to the applications of
radiation: energy production, industry, medicine (diagnosis and
New alternatives for the production of nuclear energy.
Nuclear Medicine and radiotherapy.
Instrumentation and techniques based on particle
accelerators for the analysis and characterization of materials.
