Queen Mary - University of London
School of Physics and Astronomy
Physics: Particle Physics
Master of Science
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.
This programme will deepen your understanding of particle physics, covering more advanced concepts than the BSc and MSci programmes in physics. For example you will gain:
Fundamental knowledge of the standard model of particle physics
The ability to draw Feynman diagrams
Statistical knowledge of data analysis in particle physics
Knowledge of basic concepts of computer programming in modern science
The ability to apply quantum mechanical principles to the sub-atomic and sub-nuclear physics.
