Radiation Curing Program | RCP
With the evolution of energy curing technologies, entire industries are changing. An increasing emphasis on UV (ultraviolet) and EB (electron beam) curing creates new opportunities for sustainable materials manufacturing. With this in mind, RadTech International, North America (RadTech) and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) have partnered to create a program that bridges academic and professional development.
The Radiation Curing Program (RCP) helps both students and industry professionals capitalize on these emerging opportunities. Whether you are starting a new career, advancing in your current role, or simply want to better understand these technologies, RCP will help position you and your organization to lead the movement.
RCP incorporates online professional development short-courses that can be completed in 4-6 hours including:
For those wanting more in-depth knowledge, RCP offers three advanced online courses that provide foundational and advanced treatment of current and emerging UV/EB curing principles and applications. These courses offer three 500-level credits each:
- Introduction to Polymer Coatings
- Radiation Curing of Polymer Technologies
- Radiation Curing Equipment, Instrumentation and Safety
These advanced courses may be taken for graduate credit or as non-credit professional development. Participants taking all three core courses for credit can apply for a Graduate Certificate in Radiation Curing from the State University of New York.
The Radiation Curing Program's online format is flexible and accommodates work, travel, and other commitments. This allows you and your organization to advance in this innovative and rapidly growing field in a convenient and cost-effective way. It is the perfect educational solution to complement in-house training for new and existing employees and for those wanting to learn more about the radiation curing field.
No matter how you decide to be a part of the Radiation Curing Program, this is an incredible opportunity to position yourself and your organization to meet current and future energy curing challenges and opportunities.
On behalf of RadTech and SUNY-ESF, we invite you to get started today.
