Physics - Nuclear and Particle Physics M.Sc. at Uppsala University puts you at the very frontline of fundamental physics where we explore the structure of matter at the subatomic level and applications of our findings.

About

Physics - Nuclear and Particle Physics M.Sc. at Uppsala University  covers the entire length scale from subatomic strings to the whole universe, with forefront research across all sub-branches of physics - from research on elementary particles and materials, the structure of the earth and its atmosphere, to space and the properties of the universe. 

The physics and the theoretical and experimental methods are used by researchers who try to understand nature at the most fundamental level, including astrophysics and cosmology. The technology that makes the experiments possible is also used in many other fields such as engineering, finance and medicine.

Career

The specialisation in Nuclear and Particle Physics gives you a versatile and solid background in fundamental physics and its applications. You will be very well prepared to go on to become a PhD student in these, or related, fields.You will also have great opportunities for jobs in industry or government. Our alumni can be found in a wide variety of jobs in, for example, engineering, data analysis and software development. They work in fields such as medical technology/medical physics, "big data", the energy sector, finance, or telecom. For a physicist with such a broad education, the opportunities are endless.
