Course content

The MSc Physics programme at Lincoln is designed to provide training in fundamental and applied physics. Students can develop broadly applicable problem-solving skills and produce a substantial research component. A choice of modules such as Materials Modelling, which uses specialist computational facilities to perform classical and quantum mechanical simulation of materials; and Advanced Instrumentation, which is designed to equip students to design and analyse complex experiments, aim to take students to the borders of current physics research occurring in our School and train them to work as professional physicists.

Physics is a fundamental science which underpins our understanding of the world around us, from distant galaxies to the smallest particles. Physics challenges our thinking and changes our lives through developments in new technologies, healthcare, and how we live. We want our students to think about how they can apply their knowledge in wider society. The Entrepreneurial Physics module will encourage students to think beyond traditional academic limits, and aims to provide the tools to start or join a small specialist company, including intellectual property awareness and project planning. The Financial Kinetics module introduces students to the stochastic modelling of markets.
