The MSc in Physics of Fundamental Interactions and Experimental Techniques addresses new discoveries concerning the fundamental constituents of matter and space-time and their interactions.
The programme pays special attention to the traditional elementary particle and nuclear physics, as well as the more recent interactions with gravitational physics (waves) and particles of astronomical sources. The course prepares for the international job market with an advanced scientific background as well as for PhD positions at international level.
Bachelor's degree in Physics or in a related subject with at least three years of study and at least 180 ECTS Credits (conversion rule of thumb for non-EU applicants: 1 ECTS = 30 hours of study).
