Project in Experimental Modern Physics

  • 7.5 credits

Experimental physics research is more than just working at a lab bench. You need to be able to research and plan experiments, communicate your work and results with other scientists, and practice good scientific, social and ethical judgement.

The course consists of experimental project work in order to provide deeper insights into modern physics and experimental methods. You will learn to independently plan and conduct a major experiment, report about it orally and in writing, critically review the work of others, and make judgments with regard to scientific, social and ethical aspects. An introduction to scientific literature research is given at the beginning of the course.

  • Course structure

    This is a first cycle course given during the daytime. It is an elective course.

    Teaching format
