Master in Particle Physics

You have a degree in physics or physical chemistry, our M1 allows you to deepen your knowledge of General Physics (electromagnetism, Fluid Mechanics, statistical physics, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, instrumentation, etc.). You can choose in the second half a hundred hours of introduction to research in particle physics, and have the ability to make an introductory course in search of two and a half months in a laboratory. Obviously useful for those who wish to use in research academic, these teachings are an opening for other working methods of research and deepening discipline always transferable to other areas.

Already have an M1 physics or physical chemistry, M2 will immerse you in our research in particle physics with courses that address both the theoretical concepts related to fundamental interactions (principles of symmetry, quantum field theory, gauge invariance , etc.) that instrumental methods which allow us to probe the nature: principles of detections implementing acquisition systems and data processing. Optional courses can also be an opening in the field of cosmology and astroparticle, either to radiation-matter interactions and their applications in the field of radiation. The second year ends with a research internship of five months in the laboratory.

All specialty courses are taught by faculty members and researchers from the Laboratory of Particle Physics (University Blaise Pascal - CNRS/IN2P3) participating in international research programs such as the CERN (European Laboratory for Particle Physics).

A Research Master course is a prerequisite for doctoral studies follow. But it is also an end in itself. Mastery of a scientific discipline, the handling of advanced concepts or ownership issues and current techniques of field research are all skills to your employability and your assets in homebuilding. Physics leads to everything!
