The School of Maths and Physics at Queen's University Belfast offers a range of web-based, taught modules in Plasma Physics and Vacuum Technology. The modules can be taken individually or can be combined to form the basis of a
which focuses on providing students with a knowledge of the fundamental concepts and applications of the plasmas, particularly in high power laser-produced plasmas, technological plasmas, magnetic fusion and astrophysics.
which is taught jointly with the School of Physical Science at Dublin City University and focuses on the application of these subjects in manufacturing, high technology areas, such as microelectronics and nanotechnology, and in biomedicine.
The latter degree course is part time and specifically designed for those in full time employment.
Both the courses are specifically designed for delivery through web-based interfaces so students outside of Queen's can also participate. Taught material is combined with tutorial, practical and project work.
Degree as above awarded with third class honours or pass (or its equivalent) or a third level qualification (certificate or diploma) plus relevant work experience.
