About

The field of experimental physics offers unique scientific and technological challenges.

What you'll learn

You will come into contact with forefront technologies in particle detection, such as extremely high-granularity Si-pixel detectors and high-performance computing, as well as state-of-the-art setups for laser cooling and Bose-Einstein condensation. You will also learn to utilise advanced techniques for data analysis and computer modelling.

International research

The MSc programme at Utrecht University offers courses with a strong link to research carried out by experimental research groups in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University. You will have the opportunity to work in close cooperation with groups specialising in the strong nuclear forces, ultra-cold quantum matter, and ultra-fast light-matter interaction.

Research for experimental physics is performed at labs in Utrecht and at the famous CERN laboratory in Geneva. You will also have the opportunity to participate in (inter)national research meetings.

Programme Objective

The Master's programme in Experimental Physics offers excellent preparation for a career in research laboratory in the high-tech industry, or as a PhD student at Universities and research institutes around the world.
