Teaching Award for Fusion Group at the University of York
The Plasma Physics and Fusion Group at the University of York has been recognised with a team Vice Chancellor's Teaching Award for its two postgraduate training programmes: the Fusion Doctoral Training Network and the Fusion Energy MSc.
The University of York now provides a taught MSc in Fusion Energy, in response to an international need to train physicists for this recent growth in fusion energy research activity. This Master's course provides a firm foundation to fusion physics and give introductions to some of the more advanced topics. It is an ideal course to prepare students for a PhD in fusion energy; it will also equip students who decide not to pursue fusion further with a range of important generic skills applicable in many sectors of employment.
This Fusion Energy MSc includes lectures, laboratory classes and a major research project which will be carried out over the summer months and assessed by dissertation. More information
