Physics is essential to our understanding of how the universe works: from the behaviour of fundamental particles to the movement of the stars and planets. Theory and experiment are vital to developing answers to questions about the universe and the fundamental nature of matter, energy, space and time.
This new programme is a one year masters level qualification in Physics in one of three research streams: Theoretical Physics, Particle Physics or Condensed Matter Physics.
You will gain:
- Fundamental knowledge of the standard model of particle physics
- The ability to draw Feynman diagrams
- Statistical knowledge of data analysis in particle physics
- Knowledge of basic concepts of computer programming in modern science
- The ability to apply quantum mechanical principles to the sub-atomic and sub-nuclear physics.
