We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
An Open Afternoon will be held at York Plasma Institute, University of York on Friday 19 July 2019 from 1.00 to 4.00p.m. If you think you might be interested in the MSc in Fusion Energy, please book a place and come along to find out more.
Fusion is the process that powers the stars and, in particular, our own star, the Sun. If we can achieve fusion here on earth, then the world's energy problem will be solved. It is not easy though: the fuel has to be contained at ten times the temperature at the centre of the Sun! At this temperature the fuel takes the form of an ionised gas, called a plasma. Understanding how to hold this plasma in these extreme conditions, without damaging the components of the reactor is what fusion research is all about.
The agenda for the afternoon will be as follows:
|1pm to 1.15pm||Introduction from the Course Director (Dr Kate Lancaster)|
|1.15pm to 2pm||Tour of the York Plasma Institute Laboratories|
|2pm to 2.30pm||Sample lecture|
|2.30pm to 3pm||The student experience|
|3pm to 4pm||Coffee, cake and discussions|
