Program Description

Master in Experimental Physics

Utrecht University

Explore the Interaction of Fundamental and Applied Research

The field of experimental physics offers unique scientific and technological challenges. As a student in the Master’s program in Experimental Physics, you will receive advanced training in the fundamental scientific theories that describe the world around us. You will examine the design and use of advanced instrumentation required to study those theories.

What you'll learn

You will come into contact with forefront technologies in particle detection, such as extremely high-granularity Si-pixel detectors and high-performance computing, as well as state-of-the-art setups for laser cooling and Bose-Einstein condensation. You will also learn to utilize advanced techniques for data analysis and computer modeling.

International research

The program offers courses with a strong link to research carried out by experimental research groups in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University. You will have the opportunity to work in close cooperation with groups specializing in the strong nuclear forces, ultra-cold quantum matter, and ultra-fast light-matter interaction. Research for experimental physics is performed at labs in Utrecht and at the famous CERN laboratory in Geneva. You will also have the opportunity to participate in (inter)national research meetings.

Program Objective

The program offers excellent preparation for a career in a research laboratory in the high-tech industry, or as a Ph.D. student at Universities and research institutes around the world.
