Masters degrees in Electromagnetism involve advanced study of the physical interaction that happens between electrically charged particles, and the electromagnetic fields which they exhibit.
Related subjects include Renewable Energy and Environmental Modelling. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree such as Physics or Chemistry.
Why study a Masters in Electromagnetism?
In the field of Physics, electromagnetism is considered one of the essential forces of nature. As such, courses in this field offer superb opportunities for experimental and theoretical study, with many interesting topics for you to take up for thesis research.
As a combination of an electric field and a magnetic field, electromagnetism is described by Maxwell's equations and the Lorentz force law. Training will help you to use these methodologies to understand electromagnetic force, and how both electricity and magnetism are different manifestations of the same phenomenon.
Because electromagnetic force plays a major role in determining the internal properties of most objects encountered in daily life, you could apply expertise in this field in a range of ways. This includes advising on the effects of forces on materials, working within the automotive or aerospace engineering industries, surgical medicine, or mining and quarrying.
