In the 6 project based modules you work individually on short intensive computer-based projects, with full resources provided. There are no examinations and your projects are assessed as you do them. The practical nature of the course means many short laboratory experiments and getting acquainted with the subject in a hands-on way. You will learn about magnets, RF power transmission, beam deflection and focusing, electronic signal measurement, and a wide range of other techniques using modern equipment. This will give you a real feel for what goes on in an accelerator system, to give a foundation for your work. The laboratory modules are also assessed in session, marks are gained for successfully completed tasks. The research project is assessed through your written dissertation, a presentation and a poster.
