Master's Programme in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences
Welcome new students
How did we get here from the big bang?
What are the laws of nature governing the universe from elementary particles to the development of the solar system, stars and galaxies? In the Master’s Programme in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences, you focus on gaining an extensive understanding of these phenomena. You will also acquire proficiency in the use of mathematical methods, IT tools and/or experimental equipment, as well as strong problem-solving and logical deduction skills. These will qualify you for a career in research or for a wide range of positions in the private sector.
The Master's Programme in Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences has two study tracks: 1) elementary particle physics and cosmology and 2) astrophysical sciences. Find out more about the programme structure, content and courses from the link below.
