Description

Our MSc in Applied Physics is a vocational course for anyone with a background in the physical sciences or engineering.

You can choose classes relevant to your career interests from a wide range of topics including:

– high-power microwave technology
– laser-based particle acceleration and enabled applications
– physics and the life sciences
– materials and solid state physics
– photonics
– quantum optics and quantum information technology

On the MSc programme you’ll acquire:

– in-depth knowledge of current and emerging theories, techniques and practices within the field of physics and the life sciences and the ability to apply these theories in a professional setting
– problem-solving and high numeracy skills that are widely sought-after across the commercial sector skills required to use high-power microwave technology in an industrial environment
– professional abilities in applying laser-based particle acceleration and enabled applications
– in-depth knowledge of materials and solid state physics, photonics & quantum optics and quantum information technology
– You‘ll put the knowledge gained in the taught classes to use on a research project. You can design the project to fit in with your interests and career plans.
The course gives you the opportunity to explore and master a wide range of applied physics skills. It teaches you transferable, problem-solving and numeracy skills that are widely sought after across the commercial sector.
