Course Description

This MSc allows you to specialise in any of the research areas described in Faculty interests and particularly the fields of atomic, molecular and optical physics, as well as experimental particle physics. Assessment Assessment for the taught courses is by coursework and unseen examination. Assessment for the project is by seminar, poster presentation, and a dissertation of not more than 20,000 words. Programme structure (full time) You take six courses in total from: Autumn term: Atom Light Interactions ? Collider Physics ? Cosmology ? Data Analysis Techniques ? Further Quantum Mechanics ? General Relativity ? Relativistic Quantum Fields I ? Stellar Structure ? Symmetry in Particle Physics, or an option from mathematics, chemistry, biology, or engineering. Autumn and spring terms: Astronomy Research Skills. Spring term: Astronomical Detector Technology and Instrumentation ? Computer Simulations in Physics ? Early Universe ? Galactic Structure ? Neutrino and Astroparticle Physics ? Particle Physics Detector Technology ? Quantum Optics and Quantum Computation ? Relativistic Quantum Fields II, or an option from mathematics, chemistry, biology, or engineering. Summer term: Beyond the Standard Model ? Cold Atoms and Molecules ? Quantum Mechanics II. Up to two of the six courses may also be chosen from: Autumn term: Condensed State Physics I ? Introduction to C ? Nuclear and Particle Physics I. Spring term: Condensed State Physics II ? Nuclear and Particle Physics II. Programme structure (part time) Distribution of courses over the two years is flexible and will be agreed between you, your supervisor and the course convenor. Most of your project work will naturally fall into the second year.
