About

The High-Energy Physics Master’s program offers comprehensive theoretical and experimental training covering a wide range of fields and applications: particle physics, astroparticle physics, standard model of electroweak interactions and its extensions, strong interactions and quantum chromodynamics, tools and methods in experimental physics, general relativity, string theory and cosmology.

Overview

High-energy physics is devoted to the study of elementary blocks of matter and associated forces. This relies on particle collider experiments at very high energy or very large beam intensities, as well as highly sensitive detectors. These experimental devices give access to the laws of physics at very short distances.

High Energy Physics at Institut Polytechnique de Paris  offers comprehensive theoretical and experimental training in high-energy physics covering a wide range of fields and applications: particle physics, astroparticle physics, standard model of electroweak interactions and its extensions, strong interactions and quantum chromodynamics, tools and methods in experimental physics, general relativity, string theory and cosmology.

The second year of the Master’s program enables students to acquire advanced knowledge and build their research skills.

The program offers an international track leading to a dual degree from two prestigious institutions, Institut Polytechnique de Paris and ETH Zürich. This dual degree curriculum has a common design drawing on a selection of courses from the two institutions.

Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies. 

Career:

On graduation, students will be equipped to pursue a PhD paving the way for a career as a researcher in academia or industry.
