Degree Course Characteristics

Jaderna a casticova fyzika Bc 03

The course is oriented towards nuclear physics and elementary particle physics, i.e. disciplines presenting fundamental facts about the structure of matter and principal interactions of the microworld. However, many findings and methods have surpassed the realm of physics and found their place in many fields of human activities. The degree course is based mainly on the common core of mathematics and physics.

The degree course is based on theoretical courses dealing with subatomic physics and quantum mechanics, building on a series of lectures on mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, atomic physics, theoretical physics, thermodynamics, and statistical physics. The courses of theoretical character are supplemented with courses characterising the specialization, namely courses on detectors and principles of detection, physical measurements, and experimental physics. An important part of the degree course is mastering experimental physics, experimental techniques and physics practicals. Mathematics courses include calculus, linear algebra, numerical methods, equations of mathematical physics, and basics of programming.

The course lays stress on modern methods of obtaining experimental data and on their computational processing, on methods of machine learning, physical interpretation of experimental results, formulation of theoretical models, as well as possible applications in practice of the facts obtained. Also, part of the course is laboratory training. Preference is given to one-to-one tutorials with the supervisor. Students are also invited to join research teams and are given guidance on teamwork. Therefore, they have a chance to study also at such collaborating institutions as the Czech Academy of Sciences, CERN Geneva, the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and GSI Darmstadt.

As evident, this is a complex interdisciplinary programme preparing graduates for careers in industry or in academic institutions.

Graduate´s Profile

The graduates will have acquired the most complex specialized knowledge of modern physics and mathematics, which will enable them to be creative members of teams addressing new interdisciplinary issues of science and engineering. They are familiar with issues of nuclear, particle, and quantum physics, detection methods, and detectors of ionizing radiation. They can directly continue their higher education in the same or a similar Continuation Master Programme.

The graduates will have gained skills in applying up-to-date methods of modern physics to tackle issues of nuclear and particle physics, as well as skills in preparing and performing experiments and in processing and interpreting the results of measurements followed by a comprehensive analysis of statistical and systematic errors of measurements.. And also, they will have gained experience in international teamwork and skills in presenting and communicating the results obtained to peers and defending them.

Owing to their training in using analytical and systematic approach to what they do and mastery of skills in using up-to-date computers and methods of machine learning, the Bachelor Course graduates are good candidates for positions in industry, research, and the private sector. They are also eligible to work in nuclear research institutions, health care, or in car industry. As qualified physicists-experimenters, the graduates can gain positions in fundamental, applied, strategic, and even engineering research. They are ready to address issues in physics, making use of the latest experimental techniques and of large data processing equipment.
