Courses

RST is one of the four departments providing the BSc and MSc educational programs Technische Natuurkunde (Applied Physics).

Radiation Detection & Medical imaging

Radiation plays an important role in a large variety of applications relevant to society, industry and science. The section Radiation Detection & Matter (RD&M) directs its research and education into the detection and use of radiation (including light quanta, X-rays and gamma radiation, neutrons, electrons and positrons, protons, and light ions) and into luminescence materials (gamma ray scintillators, neutron scintillators, storage phosphors, luminescence phosphors).

Nuclear Energy and Radiation Applications

The Nuclear Energy and Radiation Applications (NERA) group is part of the Radiation Science & Technology department of the Faculty of Applied Sciences of Delft University of Technology. NERA focuses on the design and analysis of innovative nuclear reactor systems aimed at improved efficiency, a high degree of safety, flexibility and user-friendliness, combined with a reduction in radioactive waste. The main emphasis of the research is on dynamics of Boiling Water Reactors with natural circulation and analysis of so-called Generation-IV reactors with a view to increase the sustainability of nuclear energy.

Radiation and Isotopes for Health

The main areas of research are the innovation and optimization of the use of radiation and radioisotopes in the health sciences. The research focuses on innovative production pathways and applications of radioisotopes, which includes the use of radioactive compounds for radiotherapy and diagnostics, the use of radionuclides in studies into the behaviour, distribution (e.g. targeting) and effects of elements, (radio)nuclides and compounds. Another line of activities concerns the dosimetry of ionizing radiation in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine (imaging and therapy). Methods are developed on assessment of image quality (radiology) and quality assurance and quality control of equipment, mainly for radiology.

Master of Science of Sustainable Energy Technology

Wide technical programme with 3TU federation

The Master’s Programme in Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) calls on the present know-how and that being generated in the research of many groups, from the faculties of

  • Applied Sciences;
  • Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering;
  • Technology, Policy and Management;
  • Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science;
  • Aerospace Engineering and
  • Industrial Design.

All are at work on aspects that impact the conventional source alternatives, such as wind, solar and biomass initiatives. The SET programme thus offers a wide technical programme with essential components from other disciplines, positioned within a critical societal, political and managerial context. The course is offered by the ‘3TU federation’ of TU Eindhoven, TU Delft and the University of Twente.
