Field characteristics

The bachelor´s degree course is oriented towards nuclear physics and elementary particle physics, i.e. fields providing fundamental knowledge of the structure of matter and basic interactions between elementary particles. Considerable knowledge and many methods have, however, now escaped the bounds of physics and are applied in various fields of human activity. Study plans of the degree course are based on the Faculty´s core course in physics, mathematics and chemistry.
The basis of physics training is subatomic physics and quantum physics, both based on lectures in theoretical physics, thermodynamics, and statistical physics. The basic course is complemented by lectures on the interaction of ionizing radiation with matter and on ionizing radiation detectors. Students can also attend a two-semester hands-on course in experimental physics. Emphasis is placed on methods for experimental data collection and processing with the use of computer technology, the physical interpretation of experimental results and their possible applications. Part of the coursework is also practicals in laboratories; individual forms of supervised tuition are preferred. Students are gradually involved in the solution of research projects to be prepared for modern team work in research. The academic programme utilises the department´s close cooperation with institutions outside the Faculty (Czech Academy of Sciences, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics; CERN, Geneva; BNL, Brookhaven; FNAL, Chicago; GSI, Darmstadt, etc.).

Graduate's profile

Knowledge: The student is trained in basic physical, mathematical, and IT disciplines and can thus be creatively involved in the solution to new interdisciplinary scientific and engineering issues. Successful course graduates are eligible for admission to the Master Programme in the same or related field.

Skills: Graduates will have mastered the methods and techniques of experimental physics to solve real problems in nuclear and particle physics.

Competency: Positions for the graduates are open mainly in industry, research, and the private sector, and their capabilities in using highly analytical methods of work and systematic approach to solving problems via modern information technologies are highly appreciated. They can assume positions as skilled technical staff well-oriented in sophisticated applications of plasma physics, ranging from thermonuclear fusion reactors through ecology to medicine as well as materials engineering.
