The Radiological Sciences option is one of several BMEBT (Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology) options that are designed to expand the scope of the M.S. degrees offered at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) to encompass a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to biological sciences, physics, engineering, etc. The degree program is a multi-campus degree program with participation from Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell campuses. This option is intended to develop original research contributions to the discipline of radiological sciences with a focus on applications in the medical field.
The BMEBT with radiological sciences option degree allows one a deeper understanding of the uses of radiation in biomedical and health research. Whether it be how radiation effects cells to yield more effective cancer treatments, or novel attenuation strategies to better shield patients from radiation, this degree will set you apart for a career in the biotechnology or health sectors.
The master's program is designed such that professionals can earn their degree while still working.
Following successful completion of coursework with a minimum of 31 credits completed or transferred in that satisfy the core and elective specialization courses, the student will be awarded the Master of Science degree.
Sample courses can include:
- RADI.5010L Radiation Safety and Control I
- RADI.5240 Environmental Health Physics
- RADI.5330 External Radiation Dosimetry and Shielding
- RADI.5410 Radiochemistry
- RADI.5980 Introduction to Medical Imaging
- RADI.6650 Advanced Radiation Therapy Physics
