Course characteristics

The bachelor´s degree course in Physics and Technology of Thermonuclear Fusion is multi-disciplinary and comprises both classical and modern sections of physics, mathematics and informatics. It trains students for using methods derived from physics in natural sciences and engineering, making use of modern computer technology. It includes courses in mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, thermodynamics, theoretical physics, and experimental physics including physics practicals. Mathematics courses include topics of mathematical analysis, algebra, numerical methods, mathematical physics equations, and mathematical statistics. Informatics subjects develop basic computer skills, programming skills and internet skills. Students are oriented towards problems in research and development of thermonuclear fusion in terms of fusion as a future source of energy. Students also study plasma physics, principles of thermonuclear facilities and technology of their components. An integral part of the course programme is measuring methods, methods of numerical modelling, basics of materials physics, physics of ionizing radiation, and the basics of energetics, as well as many elective lectures related to the bachelor’s degree project. A significant part of the curriculum includes practicals, both standard, i.e. measurements and processing of data, and special, i.e. preparation of experiments as teamwork, performing the experiment, etc. A challenging theoretical background, a promising perspective, and a broad interdisciplinary scope of courses contribute to creating an excellent professional profile for the graduate, opening job opportunities not only in science but also in modern industries.

The aim of the degree programme Physics and Technology of Thermonuclear Fusion is to educate experts concerned with the issues of controlled release of nuclear energy based on fusion of light isotopes of hydrogen.

Graduate profile

Knowledge: The graduates will have mastered basic physics, mathematics, and IT disciplines furthered through the theory of plasma physics and can cope with physics and engineering issues in this discipline. Successful graduates can directly apply for admission to the Continuation Master Programme in the same or related fields.

Skills: The graduates will have acquired skills for using the techniques for solving real-life engineering problems, using modern computer techniques, the ability to address theoretical problems as qualified technical staff, fully controlling experimental instrumentation typical of plasma-oriented technologies.

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 a 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.
