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 programme 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 utilise advanced techniques for data analysis and computer modelling.
The programme 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 specialising 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.
The programme offers excellent preparation for a career in research laboratory in the high-tech industry, or as a PhD student at Universities and research institutes around the world.
