Explore the very building blocks of reality, investigating the fundamental particles that make up our universe. Operate at the forefront of technological innovation, and contribute scientific solutions to the known and unknown problems of the future. This master's programme will allow you to explore the fascinating world of particle physics, searching for answers to some of the universe’s most intriguing and enduring mysteries.
This master's programme is intended for those with a strong interest in theoretical, computational, and experimental aspects of physics and astronomy. In the High energy physics profile, you will cover certain subjects at a particularly deeper level, including symmetry, gravitation, string theory and the standard model of particle physics. The following courses are available for this profile:
● Gravitation and cosmology
● Quantum field theory
● Standard model of particle physics
● String theory
You will benefit from working alongside world-class researchers and graduate with highly specialised knowledge in these exciting and in-demand fields. In this master’s programme as a whole, you will learn to identify and explain general aspects of physics that are integral to applications in engineering and natural sciences. Furthermore, you will identify relevant theoretical, computational, and experimental methods and apply these to problem-solving across a wide range of fields.
The core courses of the programme focus on giving you a solid understanding of the fundamental principles of physics, thereby preparing you for a future driven by knowledge and technology.
Wider topics range from the subatomic to cosmological scale, covering complex phenomena relevant in fields such as quantum technology, nanomaterials, and living matter. The programme encourages creative thinking, critical evaluation, and engineering skills grounded in the fundamental principles of the physical world.
You will graduate with expertise in problem-solving and in advanced experimental and theoretical techniques, making you highly attractive to national and international employers in the private and public sectors alike. The programme is an excellent preparation for all manner of diverse careers in fields that benefit from quantitative and analytical thinking – industrial research, consulting, teaching, research and more. Further studies and a career in academia is of course another route that you will be well placed to follow.
