Course Description

In October 2011, the Institute of Shock Physics (ISP) in Imperial College London will be taking in it?s second round of students on it?s Masters course in Shock Physics. This is an intensive one?year course leading to an MSc qualification. The course is a mixture of teaching (45%) and research (55%) covering theoretical, experimental and numerical (e.g. hydrocodes) aspects of the field. The lecture courses have been designed to include graduates from Physics, Mathematics, Materials Science, Chemistry and Engineering backgrounds and give them a firm grounding in the relevant areas which feed into current research in high?pressure and Shock Wave science. Courses will be given by ISPstaff assisted by active researchers in this field from other institutions. The research element consists of a six month long project which can be performed within Imperial College London or other relevant research centres or organisations. Up to 20 places are available. There are a limited number of bursaries available for the course, these cover all fees, maintenance etc. They will be awarded by application to the ISP followed by interview. Please see the shockphysics website for examples of Masters? research areas. Image courtesy of Steve Johnson - Lab Manager One of ISP Research Facilities - 100mm Single Stage Gas Gun
