The course is not on the list Without time-table
Code Completion Credits Range
16PDIB KZ 4 0+4
Lecturer:
Tutor:
Supervisor:
Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation
Synopsis:

The curriculum comprises collection of the most important exercises in Dosimetry. It enables student?s familiarization with physical parameters and constants, supports competency in measuring dosimetric parameters and provides information concerning preferred methods for ionizing radiation measurement results processing. It is a tool for introducing students to the practical aspects of scientific research work.

The duration of each single task is 4 hours, followed by results processing. Work protocol is not required, however what is expected is active participation in selection of alternative solution methods, requiring complex application of theoretical knowledge.
