    The goalThe aim of the course is to present the basics for measuring instrumentation and measurement methods of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation.
    The outcomeAfter the course students should be introduced in : (1) measuring methods of ionised and non-ionized radiation, (2) obtaing the communication and social competence for the engineering team, (3) obtaining sceels in clear communications and definitions of the problems .
