Physics of Fundamental Interactions and Experimental Techniques

Course type: Master Degree

School: Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences

Department: Physics

Duration: 2 years

Language: English

Access type: Open with curricular skills test


The curriculum in Fundamental Interactions and Experimental Techniques aims at connecting the most advanced physics courses with modern technologies’ applications, clearing the way for both unique
opportunities and science and technologies’ experiences. The Curriculum will give the competences to allow students to deal with physics technologies and innovations such as:

  • modern detectors, which are at the basis of several
    physics-based industrial and business sectors;
  • Modern diagnostic techniques such as PET, CT, based on
    radiation and nuclear physics technologies.
  • Innovative materials that are the forefront of high-tech application and their application is
    emergent in the public and private sectors.
  • Neutron Sciences with applications and extensive collaborations with international Large Scale.

Facilities such as ISIS at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK) and European Spallation Source.
This Curriculum is designed in collaboration with research institutions in the Tor Vergata area, such
as INFN, CNR, ENEA, ASI, and several classes are taught by researchers from these institutions.

Career Opportunities

Modern life is characterised by technological developments based on discoveries in Physics, from ultra-fast computers to renewable energy technologies. Several important diagnostic and
therapeutic techniques have been built on either basic physics principles or on the tools developed to conduct physics research. According to this modern life, the Physics curriculum in Physics for
Instrumentation and Technology aims at enhancing our students’ attitude towards the physics technology, instrumentation and innovation. Our graduates will find job opportunities in many
sectors where the Physics-derived technologies have a large impact. We also offer intership opportunities encouraging our students to apply for them, thanks to our
collaborative agreements with INFN, ENEA, CNR, ASI.


For admission to the M.Sc. in Physics, prospective students must have a Bachelor’s degree in Physics.
