Тhе MSc programme Nuclear and Particle Physics –I aims to prepare highly qualified specialists in the field of nuclear physics, particle physics, radiation physics. After successful graduation the students will have knowledge and skills to perform fundamental and applied scientific research, development of experimental equipment, as well as routine measurements in the laboratories.
The successful candidate should have a BSc degree in physics. If the candidate does not have sufficient relevant background (at least 180 lecture hours or 15 ECTS credits in subjects in the field of nuclear and particle physics), he/she should attend additional courses during the MSc study.
During the first two semesters students should attend elective lecture courses (at least 300 hours per semester, equivalent to 30 ECTS) and successfully take exams. At least 4 of the lecture courses should be chosen from the list of obligatory courses. One course from another MSc programme (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, Nuclear Energy and Technology or Medical Physics) can be chosen as well. The total number of courses for the first and the second semester should be at least 10. The third semester is foreseen for research work under supervision of senior tutors, MSc thesis preparation and participation in scientific seminars (30 ECTS in total).
