Research degrees in Experimental Physics typically include a mixture of course modules and original research work, which may involve laboratory investigations and computational studies. Prospective postgraduate students should contact individual supervisors for further details

Career options:
Research students at the Department of Experimental Physics gain expertise in specialized areas of experimental physics, computational physics or astrophysics during the course of their studies.

This means that they are highly sought after by employers in a wide range of high-technology industries such as software engineering, micro-electronics, telecommunication engineering, scientific civil service, medical physics as well as those areas specifically requiring astrophysicists such as space science, satellite communications. A PhD degree is a prerequisite for careers in academia and industrial research.
