Whether it's medical or scientific research, consumer product development or national security, particle accelerators touch nearly every part of our daily lives. Today, there are more than 30,000 particle accelerators in operation around the world and the number is still growing.
As well as probing the fundamentals of nuclear and particle physics, accelerators have many other uses, including generating neutrons for studying the structure of many types of condensed matter, making photons for X-ray diffraction, and producing short-lived isotopes for imaging.
However, this technology is being held back because of a lack of qualified staff. All over the world, the expertise to operate, design and build accelerators is in short supply.
Developed in collaboration with industry and supported by our internationally renowned expert staff, this course aims to expand your skills to meet the needs of industry. With our support you will have the opportunity to develop the key practical skills and expert knowledge required to succeed in organisations which build accelerator systems, components, or are researching future developments and applications of these vital machines.
The course is suitable for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, or a similar subject, such as Mathematics or Engineering, who want to specialise in accelerator science. A good honours degree is required, and, if appropriate, an IELTS score of at least 6.5 in all sections.
