The doctoral programme in Nuclear and Ionising Radiation Engineering (PDINRI) received the Pathway to Excellence award from 2011 to 2013 (MEE2011-0496), and has also been given the Quality Award by the Ministry of Education (MEC) (MCD2005-00347) since 2005.

In the context of the Spanish strategic objectives for research, development and innovation, the programme is in line with the strategic action on Energy and Climate Change, with relevant branches in the area of public health, due to the medical applications of radiation. Within the new structure of the UPC Doctoral School, the PDINRI is included in the area of industrial engineering. In this area, it contributes to priority research lines in energy technology and medical technologies. The programme is related to the other similar postgraduate programmes in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences that are offered in the many technology universities worldwide (to give some examples from both sides of the Atlantic, https://ners.engin.umich.edu, http://nuclear.engr.utexas.edu or http://www.cnec.group.cam.ac.uk).

In the environment that is closest to our circumstances, the current situation and future perspectives for the use of ionising radiation (IR) in general, and the production of nuclear energy in particular, justify the need for this doctoral programme. For example, Catalonia has three nuclear power stations in operation (Ascó I, Ascó II and Vandellòs) that generate approximately 45% of the electrical energy consumed in the region. In the whole of Spain, there are eight nuclear power stations that provide around 20% of the electrical energy that is consumed.

As mentioned above, healthcare is another field in which IR plays a notable role with a high social impact. Particle accelerators (mainly electron accelerators), X-ray generators and radioactive sources of various kinds are used in hospitals for diagnostic and treatment purposes. Numerous techniques are involved. Diagnostic techniques include conventional radiography, gammagraphy, SPECT, PET and multimodal scanners and radioimmunoassay. Treatment techniques include external radiotherapy, brachytherapy, radiosurgery, etc.

The intensive use of IR is driving an interest in precise measurement of the absorbed dose and its effects on living tissues. These areas are the subject of studies of dosimetry and radiobiology, respectively. Currently, these problems are addressed from an experimental perspective or using advanced computer simulation techniques. In turn, radiological protection studies assess and optimise radiation fields in the environment of employees who are exposed in their work and the general public.

In another area, the construction in Catalonia of the first Spanish synchrotron light laboratory (called Alba, see http://www.cells.es) means that specialists in accelerator technology are likely to be needed in the future. The knowledge gained by students on our programme will enable them to understand the bases for constructing and operating facilities of this type.

Of particular importance due to its future prospects is the development of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project (see http://www.iter.org) in Cadarache, France, whose management office is in Barcelona. The ITER reactor, which is a ‘tokamak’ reactor, will be used to study energy production via the nuclear fusion of deuterium and tritium. The training of future researchers and technologists in this area contributes to our commitment to more sustainable, environmentally friendly energy models .

There are also many applications of ionising radiation in other industrial and research environments. Some of the many examples are level probes in tanks and silos, nuclear gauges, irradiators for the sterilisation of instruments and foods, quantitative analysis techniques in materials science, radiometric dating techniques, etc.

As can be seen, there are numerous, relevant direct and derived uses of IR in our society. PDINRI is designed to provide students with solid training that enables them to tackle research and development tasks associated with one of the three specialisations of the programme, that is, nuclear energy technology, the use of IR for medical and industrial purposes, or particle accelerator technology.

An additional objective is to bring students into contact with prestigious institutions dedicated to research, the development of technology or its use. INTE and SEN are in contact with various institutions, including Spanish nuclear power stations, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on the French-Swiss border, the Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology Research (Ciemat), the Spanish National Research Council (CSN) in Madrid, the Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA), the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) in Archamps, France, the Synchroton Light Laboratory (Alba) in Cerdanyola del Vallès, Spain and the US Food and Drug Administration (CDRH-FDA), Silver Spring, MD, USA.

Particular attention is given to the topics that are most closely associated with specialised groups at the UPC, such as fission and fusion reactor technology, the safety of nuclear facilities, the design of new particle accelerators, medical radiophysics, radiological protection and the impact of IR on the environment and human health.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years.

When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.

Legal framework

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Students who wish to enter the programme must have taken at least 60 credits of a master’s degree whose subject area is related to nuclear engineering or ionising radiations.

In any case, the academic committee of the programme is responsible for making the admission decision. Applicants who do not meet the aforementioned requirements should be consulted by the committee. Some exceptions can be made if there are justified reasons and if considered appropriate.


Direct entry to the doctoral programme is through the master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering or Biomedical Engineering of the UPC. In this case, bridging courses are not required.

If an order of priority of applicants needs to be established, the academic committee could consider the following aspects:

– Academic record (weighting: 30%).
– Personal interview (weighting: 30%).
– Research experience (weighting: 30%).
– Command of the English language (weighting: 10%).

Training complements

The natural route to enter the doctoral programme is via the master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering at the UPC or the master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the UPC. In these two cases, applicants will not be required to take bridging courses if they have obtained at least 60 ECTS of the above degrees. Students who enter the programme from other master’s degrees will carry out specific research bridging courses according to the academic committee’s criteria. In this case, the bridging courses that are taken will be monitored. Doctoral students cannot be required to enrol for more than 60 ECTS.

The academic committee of the programme will be the body responsible for stipulating the bridging courses for each student, depending on the subjects they have taken in their master's degrees and the research line selected for the thesis. Subjects that the student could take are indicated depending on the prior learning.

For example:

– Students who come from the area of biology, medicine or the life sciences general will be channelled preferentially towards research lines associated with the field of medical radiophysics. The bridging courses could be selected from subjects related to this field.

– Students who have a background in physics, chemistry or engineering will be preferentially channelled towards research lines associated with medical radiophysics or nuclear engineering.

Subjects of master’s degrees that are associated with the programme have well-defined objectives, methodologies and assessment processes so that they prepare students to gain the competencies defined in previous sections. In any case, depending on each student’s curriculum, the academic committee could adapt the bridging courses that need to be taken. Considering the doctoral student activity report (DAD), the academic committee of the programme could propose additional measure to those established in the regulations that lead to the withdrawal of doctoral students who do not meet the established criteria.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

The enrolment period for new doctoral students will be in September.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

After the first year, the enrolment period for doctoral students will run from September to mid-October.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

    Thesis abstract: Heating plasmas to fusion-relevant temperatures stands as a pivotal factor in magnetically confined fusion plasmas. Theapplication of radio frequency (RF) heating through electromagnetic waves in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies (ICRF) hasdemonstrated its efficacy as an auxiliary method in existing fusion devices such as tokamaks. Moreover, ITER will incorporateICRF antennas as a primary heating mechanism. Consequently, investigating various heating schemes to enhance fusionperformance becomes critically significant. This thesis presented the development and assessment of theoretical models forICRF heating at two operational devices, i.e JET and AUG, and at the ITER upcoming tokamak, with a special focus on this lastone.The main objective of this thesis was to use, for the first time, the heating code PION integrated into the European TransportSimulator (ETS) to study and predict how the plasma parameters would be affected and evolve when ICRF heating was appliedto ITER Pre-Fusion Power Operation (PFPO), non-active plasmas. Special attention was given to bulk ion heating, temperatureenhancement, sensitivity of the ICRF power partition to minority concentration, and to the comparison between the resultsobtained in this thesis and the results obtained in previous works. The presence of ICRF physics such as Doppler effects, finiteorbit width (FOW) effects, finite Larmor radius (FLR) effects, and the screening effect were studied, and their impact wasdiscussed. In order to prove the feasibility of using the PION+ETS integration on currently working reactors, PION+ETS was usedto study a JET baseline scenario and an AUG deuterium plasma, even though the emphasis was on the predictions of the ITERnon-active phase.The results presented in this thesis are the first results obtained with the PION+ETS integration. Considering the dependence ofITER on every unit of auxiliary heating power that can be introduced into the plasma, it is essential to conduct both numerical andexperimental investigations of this nature. The efforts in this thesis were directed towards testing and enhancing the performanceof ICRF scenarios. Such endeavours play a critical role in ensuring the successful operation of ITER during its early phase. Onthis basis, this thesis offered valuable insights into optimising plasma performance through various heating schemes. The resultspresented here serve as a guide for maximising absorption, bulk ion heating, and final temperature by appropriately configuringthe ICRF heating schemes.Of special relevance for the ITER PFPO phase was the study of three ICRF schemes; fundamental minority H heating in He4plasma at half field (referred to as Scenario 1), second harmonic minority H heating in He4 plasma at the third field (Scenario 2),and fundamental He3 heating in a three-ion scheme in H plasma at 3.3T (Scenario 3). In terms of power density absorbed,single-pass absorption (SPA) coefficients, and final thermal ion temperature, Scenario 1 presented the best alternative ascompared to the other two ITER scenarios, with appropriate results obtained with the smallest minority concentration of 1%.Scenario 2 showed the highest electron temperature and the largest thermal ion temperature enhancement, with an interestingpossibility of using only a minority concentration of 1% as well. Finally, the three-ion scheme in Scenario 3 presented the bestbulk ion heating with minority concentrations two orders of magnitude smaller than the other two Scenarios. FOW and FLReffects were present in all simulations, most notably affecting Scenario 2, where the FLR effects limited the range of energies thatthe resonating ions could reach.Future steps involve enhancing understanding of available transport modelling tools in the ETS framework, conducting thoroughbenchmarking against JET and AUG experimental results, and applying PION+ETS to ITER active phase scenarios.

    Thesis abstract: Nuclear fusion has been under development for years, showing consistent advancements toward becoming a clean and efficient energy source. However, significant challenges persist in this field, with tritium handling being a major concern. Tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen used as fuel for fusion, presents unique issues due to its ability to penetrate walls and interact with water and organic compounds.In ITER, where tritium will be used on a large scale (reaching quantities in the order of kilograms), ensuring plant safety is critical. The plant must periodically halt operations to consolidate all process streams for tritium accounting, a time-consuming process that can last hours. This practice is impractical for future industrial fusion plants aspiring for economic feasibility, especially considering the pulsating nature of tokamak burn phases.This thesis proposes a dynamic monitoring framework to address these challenges and improve static tritium accounting. Leveraging first-principle simulation models and data-driven methodologies such as fault detection and time series forecasting, the framework aims to provide continuous, reliable tritium inventory updates. The framework's effectiveness is verified using the Tennessee Eastman process, a process engineering virtual plant, and validated on a representative tritium processing system: the Tokamak Exhaust Processing system.

    Thesis abstract: The protection of the public against the harmful effects of ionizing radiation and radioactive contaminations caused by nuclear or other accidents is of major importance and may affect thousands of people. Following a radiological incident, radiation protection and other authorities need quick and credible information on affected areas. Large-scale contamination requires radiation measurement methods and tools able to quantify the risks in a timely manner. The unmanned airborne gamma spectrometry method brings together the benefits of vast area coverage by an aircraft system, the mature spectrometric techniques for nuclide identification, and the safety of an operator staying out of the affected area. Building upon the vast background of manned aircrafl radiometric surveys, this thesis investigates the metrological and technical challenges of implementing the aerial gamma spectrometry method at the time of booming usage of unmanned aircraft systems. For this purpose, a spectrometer-based dosimetric system was designed and implemented on a commercial drone. The system is built around a 1.5-inch cerium bromide scintillation detector, incorporates necessary telemetry instruments, and can be attached as a payload to a drone. During the flight, the system measures and transmits the radiation and telemetry data to the ground station where geo-tagged spectra are processed. The software package with the graphical interface has been developed to process the aerial data and supply an operator with radiological (dose rate map, spectrum history) information and flight telemetry (altitude, temperature, pressure). This work describes the steps of the unmanned airborne radiation monitoring system characterization necessary for the traceable measurement of radiation quantities. The author introduces new techniques for the temperature stabilization of radiation spectra and the traceable spectrum-to-dose conversion that enhance the data quality of the gamma spectrometry system. Tested in a range of measurement campaigns conducted within the EMPIR project "Preparedness", the developed radiation monitoring system has proved itself as a promising tool for routine and emergency aerial surveys. These campaigns covered major radiological surveillance tasks, including dose rate mapping, measuring concentrations of ground-deposited radionuclides, and the search and localization of a point-like radiation source. The results conclude that the detector confidently follows changes in dose rates at a fast 0.5 Hz acquisition rate with up to 1 mSv/h (Cs-137) dynamic range. Coupling dose rate with metrics such as the man-made gross count rate or the energy band flux, the system can determine and quantify the presence of artificial radiation components with high efficacy. The aerial point source localization campaign successfully demonstrated the system's ability to pinpoint the source while providing a good estimation of its activity. The author has gained profound experience in the subject through building, programming, calibrating, and operating the aerial system, including the piloting itself. Alongside the novel methods applied to the characterization and data analysis of the airborne radiation detector, this thesis provides feedback on the development and operation of an unmanned airborne radiation monitoring system.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
