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. The aim of the programme is to deepen your understanding of your chosen branch of contemporary physics, covering advanced concepts and techniques, leaving you well prepared for further doctoral level study and research. The programme will also enable you to develop skills transferable to a wide range of other careers. This programme will: Teach you the fundamental laws and physical principles, along with their applications, in your chosen area of physics. Introduce you to research methodology, and how to manage your own research, making use of journal articles and other primary sources. Allow you to communicate complex scientific ideas, concisely, accurately and informatively. Instruct you how to use mathematical analysis to model physical behaviour and interpret the mathematical descriptions of physical phenomena. Why study your MSc in Physics at Queen Mary? In the National Student Survey 2011, 90 per cent of our students were satisfied with the quality of the course and 98 per cent agreed that the course was intellectually stimulating. You will learn in a research-rich environment benefiting from the work done by our world-leading researchers as they incorporate their work into their teaching. Our areas of research strength are broad, and include particle physics, astronomy, condensed matter and materials physics and theoretical physics, allowing you to gain a degree with a wide knowledge of physics or the opportunity to specialise in a particular area. The School of Physics and Astronomy has an international reputation for its research across a range of areas such as experimental particle physics, nanotechnology, organic electronics, superstrings and M-theory. The School’s 45 academic staff take pride in providing a first-class education for students, as well as taking part in groundbreaking research, and creating a stimulating and supportive study environment. A unique feature of this course is the chance to study at other University of London colleges; thus allowing you access to a wider range of teaching expertise and modules. You will be allocated an academic advisor as well as a project supervisor. Weekly project supervision meetings are expected [-]
