Low Energy Radiation Curing Program Offered at SUNY

October 15, 2013

The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF), along with RadTech International North America, and other collaborators has launched a new program in radiation or energy curing, the Radiation Curing Program (RCP). Supported in part by a U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration H-1B Technical Skills Training Grant, the program is comprised of three online courses and an Advanced Certificate.

RCP prepares upper-level undergraduate and graduate students (along with practicing professionals) in the science and technology of energy curing such as ultraviolet (UV) or electron beam (EB) processing.


The RCP program was developed by a team of academic and experienced energy-curing practitioners to reflect current and emerging industry-relevant content and applications. Students matriculated at other campuses may use these courses as professionally-oriented upper-level electives focused on a specialized interdisciplinary application of chemistry, physics and engineering. Students from other campuses may register on a visiting (non-matriculated) basis during the academic year or Summer Session. Participants may:

Pursue one or more “500” level courses on a non-credit or credit basis.
Apply and earn an Advanced Certificate in Radiation Curing by meeting application requirements and successfully completing all three courses for credit (participants may register and work on one or more courses at a time)
