Taught postgraduate study

These two programmes mark a new era in theoretical physics, which follows the discovery of a Higgs boson at CERN and the establishment of the Higgs Centre, providing training in applying theoretical physics to solve problems at the forefront of academic and industry research.

By undertaking this new MSc programme, students will gain advanced experimental techniques, computational techniques, and theoretical understanding.  The programme aims to develop research and problem solving skills, preparing graduates for employment in research, science-based industry, medical physics and education.

Two MSc programmes are also offered by EPCC. The MSc in High Performance Computing and the MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science equip participants with the skills and knowledge required to lead the way in HPC, parallel programming and data science.
