What will I learn?

The field of experimental physics offers unique scientific and technological challenges. As a student in the Master’s degree programme in Experimental Physics you will receive advanced training in the fundamental scientific theories that describe the world around us. You will examine the design and use of advanced instrumentation required to study those theories.

What you'll learn

You will come into contact with forefront technologies in particle detection, such as extremely high-granularity Si-pixel detectors and high-performance computing, as well as state-of-the-art setups for laser cooling and Bose-Einstein condensation. You will also learn to utilise advanced techniques for data analysis and computer modelling.

Programme Objective

The Master's programme in Experimental Physics offers excellent preparation for a career in research laboratory in the high-tech industry, or as a PhD student at Universities and research institutes around the world.

The MSc in Experimental Physics is a research Master's, and many graduates continue in research inside or outside of academia. However, a Master's degree in Experimental Physics opens up many possibilities in industry, finance, and consultancy, depending on your particular talents and preferences. A few examples of jobs held by recent graduates from Experimental Physics include:

  • PhD candidate
  • Research & development in high-tech industry
  • Research-oriented positions in industry
