Queen's University staff are participating in the development of an intra-European inter-university Erasmus Curriculum (EU Master's programme): "Plasma Physics and Applications" (PLAPA).
The curriculum design work is carried out in the framework of a European joint project combining Technological Educational Institute of Crete (Greece), Queen’s University Belfast and Imperial College London (UK), Université de Bordeaux 1 and INSTN-CEA (France), Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic) and University of Milano, Bicocca (Italy).
The programme is designed as a two-year course for graduate students. It will account to 240 CATS units (120 ECTS) distributed in four semesters. The last semester will be devoted to the development of a scientific project by the students.
There are three main specialization areas: (i) Laser technology, (ii) Inertial fusion technology, (iii) Plasma Physics.
Once approved, the course will lead to a European master's degree, combining modules offered by the participating universities and web-based modules.
First entry is scheduled for September 2013.
For more information, please contact the local coordinator (QUB) Dr Ioannis Kourakis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
