Course Aims
The aim of the course is to provide the background necessary for understanding, monitoring the environmental radioactivity and radioecological studies.
Course Goals
1.to provide a graduate education program with specific knowledge about Water Management discipline areas.
2. to train graduates who have ability to access and interpret information with considering scientific research process
3. to train graduates who are able to do conceptual design related to theoretical and practical studies
4. to train graduates who cooperate in partnership with the area outside the discipline within planning priorities and needs of the scope of work
5. to provide a graduate education program which encourage to present thesis data in written and oral scientific platforms
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1. Be able to understand the nature of the natural and artificial radiation
2. Be able to compare the radiation doses from nuclear accident and nuclear power plant with the doses from natural radiation
3. Be able to evaluate the radiation doses according to radiation protection, health and environmental quality
4. Be able to assess the dose-risk to human health arising from environmental radioactivity
5. Be able to evaluate the effects of radiation on environment and population and being to make the study on this subject

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
