EuroMaster Certificate in Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC)
EUCheMS NRD Division
NRC EuroMaster Minimum Requirements
Nuclear and Radiochemistry Division of EUCheMS
A personal certificate that qurantee that the holder has a minimum knowledge of Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC) can be issued by universities that fulfill the criteria specified in the document
“Minimum Requirements for the EuroMaster Degree in Nuclear and Radiochemistry”
as prepared by the EU project "Cooperation in Education and Training in Europe (CINCH)". This right to issue this certificate, called "EuroMaster in Nuclear and Radiochemistry" or "NRC EuroMaster" is granted by the Nuclear and Radiochemistry Division of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS NRC Division).
The intention with the NRC EuroMaster certificate/label is that employers and other institutions will recognice it as a quality label and thus can be certain that the holder has at least knowledge and training equal to the Minimum Requirements specification. Having received the EuroMaster label should be a plus on any candidates CV and students looking for an education in NRC should seek out universities that grant this label.
Structure of a EuroMaster in Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC) Program
The master’s program should contain at least 60 ECTS credit units (cu) studies in nuclear and radiochemistry in the following way:
BSc in chemistry 180 cu
Compulsory studies in nuclear and radiochemistry minimum 25 cu (of which at least 10 cu exercises)
Optional studies in nuclear and radiochemistry minimum 5 cu
Project work and master’s thesis in nuclear and radiochemistry minimum 30 cu
Remaining cu is elective
In total the BSc and MSc programs should add up to 300 cu. For master’s programs having an different size than 120 cu the workload of nuclear and radiochemistry studies should be equivalent to at least 60 cu.
The NRC EuroMaster Label Requirements
On completion of the NRC EuroMaster program at any university holding the right to grant the label the student should have the following knowledge, abilities and skills:
Recall the underlying principles of nuclear and radiochemistry
Explain the main practical aspects of nuclear and radiochemistry
Abilities and skills:
Perform essential radiochemistry related calculations
Work safely in a radiochemistry laboratory
Perform chemical reactions including radionuclides
Use a range of radiation measurement techniques
Handle radioactive materials safely
Identify the hazards pertaining to a radionuclide
The Minimum Requirement document specify in great detail
the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities
The European NRC Network
A European Network on Nuclear and Radiochemistry Education and Training (European NRC Network) has been formed to collaborate and enhance teaching in Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC). ThisEuropean NRC Network currently (October 2015) consist of
University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland
University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway
Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK
Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ås, Norway
Czech Technical University in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz University, Hannover, Germany
University of Leeds, Leeds, UK
National Nuclear Laboratory, UK
Comissariat á L’énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives, France
Within this network a NRC EuroMaster Group will be formed by the universities that fulfill the “Minimum Requirements for the EuroMaster Degree in Nuclear and Radiochemistry” and that were granted the right to award NRC EuroMaster label to their students.
Several universities has applied for the right to grant the NRC EuroMaster label. They will be listed here as soon as they have been approved.
