Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Nuclear Technology, Graduate Diploma - Health Physics

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by subject area)

Course requirements for the Graduate Diploma in Nuclear Technology are listed below. For general program information, admission requirements, graduate faculty lists and/or details on part-time options, see Nuclear Engineering and Technology .

General graduate diploma requirements

To earn a graduate diploma, students are required to complete four courses approved by the graduate program director that are relevant to one of the areas of specialization. Each diploma has a set of defined courses relevant to the area of specialization and potentially some non-specialist courses. The four courses must be completed within a three-year period with a minimum passing grade of B-minus for each course.

Transfer credit for a course that has been taken at UOIT, or for a similar course taken at another institution within the last three years, may be granted by the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science graduate program director as long as the mark received in the course for which transfer credit is requested was a B or higher. In addition, the course must not have been used to meet the degree or diploma requirements in another program either at UOIT or at another post‐secondary institution. See UOIT’s policy on transfer credits  for additional information.

The student must select the specific diploma he or she wishes to obtain at the time of registration. Any changes to this choice, and to the selection of courses which are designed to achieve the intent of the specific specialty, must be approved by the graduate program director. It should be noted that any one course can only be counted towards one diploma and that transfer credits between other graduate diploma programs are not permitted.

Students who complete any of the graduate diplomas and wish to be considered for admission to the Master of Applied Science (MASc) or the Master of Engineering (MEng) in Nuclear Engineering may have up to six of the 12 credits counted toward their master’s degree. Students who are enrolled in the graduate diploma program and wish to switch to the MASc or MEng in Nuclear Engineering may apply for admission. If an offer of admission is granted, they may be able to transfer all of their credits from the diploma program to the master’s degree. In this case, they would not receive the graduate diploma. Students who have completed UOIT’s MASc or MEng in Nuclear Engineering, or an equivalent program, and who wish to enrol in the graduate diploma program may transfer up to six credits toward the diploma depending on the courses they have taken in their master’s program.

Graduate Diploma in Nuclear Technology requirements

As part of the requirements for the graduate diplomas in Nuclear Technology, students must complete the following:

  • A minimum of two courses from the specialty, including at least one NUCL course.
  • No more than one course from another specialty and/or up to two courses from the non-specialist common courses.
  • A minimum of two NUCL courses at the 5000 level.

Subject to the approval of the graduate program director, one graduate course may be taken that is not listed for the graduate diplomas in Nuclear Technology (i.e., from a graduate program offered by other UOIT faculties).

Of the four required courses for each graduate diploma, no more than one may be selected from the specified undergraduate course options.
