Graduate Taught and Research Programmes in UCD School of Physics
The UCD School of Physics has undergone a rapid expansion in graduate activity in recent years. There are now 13 taught masters and graduate certificate students in the area of NanoBio Science and over 60 PhD students in the school. Since September 2006 PhD students have registered to a Structured PhD Programme featuring, among other things, enhanced supervision via a doctoral studies panel and access to taught modules in transferrable skills and often discipline specific skills as well. Research is conducted in both Theoretical and Experimental Physics from particle physics to cosmology and astrophysics, including nanoscale, atomic, molecular, biological and optical physics. The researchers in the school enjoy a strong international reputation. Most PhD students publish in international peer-reviewed journals during the course of their PhD studies, which typically lasts for four years.
