PhD in nuclear engineering includes course work, qualifying exams and an original research work on a topic of choice in nuclear engineering. PhD thesis requires an international review and publications in reputed journals. At present various PhD scholars are conducting their doctoral level research in various fields of nuclear engineering in the department.
PhD in radiation physics includes course work, qualifying exams and an original research work on a topic of choice in radiation physics. PhD thesis requires an international review and publications in reputed journals. At present various PhD scholars are conducting their doctoral level research in various fields of radiation physics in the department.
This program is by far the oldest at PIEAS. More than 1300 engineers and scientists have graduated under this program over the past four decades and today they form the backbone of various projects of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and other strategic organizations. The participants of this program are taken from almost all the engineering and scientific disciplines. This diversity is just one of the imperatives of the multi-disciplinary nature of nuclear engineering itself. It has always been a stimulating challenge for the faculty to guide a group of people with different backgrounds towards the unified goal of understanding the complex systems and processes involved in nuclear technology.
The MS Radiation Physics program was launched in 2014 to meet the requirements of PAEC for expansion of Nuclear Power Program along with allied Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities. The program aims at development of graduate students in the area of Radiological Protection, Environmental Dispersion, NPPs impact Monitoring & Dosimetry, Radioactive Waste Management, Nuclear Emergency Handling, NPPs Site Selection, Reliability & Risk Assessment and Nuclear Safety Analysis. Department is equipped with advanced laboratories including Health Physics Lab., Radiation Shielding Lab., Radiation Interaction and Detection Lab., Environmental Monitoring Lab., Advanced Computational Reactor Engineering Lab., PWR Simulation Lab., and Hazardous Air Pollutants Lab. The degree is offered to the students having 2-year M.Sc. Physics degree or a 4-year B.S. Physics degree.
