MSc - Master of Science
Applied Physics Engineering Studies
Our research activity and supervision for MSD Applied Physics is concentrated in the following principal research areas: optical and semiconductor devices, semiconductors: theory and experiment, photonics, design, and construction of ultrafast systems for Terahertz studies and THz spectroscopy of molecules. Our cross-disciplinary projects draw on the expertise of our electronic engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists, and psychologists.
We are one of the largest and best resourced schools in the UK. Our work is supported by extensive networked computer facilities and software aids, together with a wide range of test and instrumentation equipment. Our research covers a range of topics, from semiconductor device physics, the theory of computation and the philosophy of computer science, computational intelligence, and computer games, to artificial intelligence and robotics, with most of our research groups based around laboratories offering world-class facilities. Our impressive external research funding stands at multi-million pounds per year, and we participate in a number of EU initiatives and undertake projects under contract to many outside bodies, including government and industrial organisations.
Studying within our School provides both the recent graduate and the practising engineer with an opportunity to gain new skills or enhance existing ones. Our graduates have progressed to a variety of senior positions in industry and academia. Some of the companies and organisations where our former graduates are now employed include Alcatel Submarine, BT Group, QinetiQ, Dolby Laboratories, Fujitsu, Royal Air Forces, and within our University and Imperial College, London.
