Work and training

UB Master

Master in Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Cosmology

This master is aimed at providing students with advanced academic training within the fields of astrophysics, space sciences, atomic, nuclear and particle physics, gravitation and cosmology. It explicitly includes one of the following pathways:

  • Astrophysics and Space Sciences
  • Particle Physics and Gravitation

depending on the modules completed by the student.

Subjects are taught by doctoral-level researchers with extensive teaching experience from three departments of the University of Barcelona: Astronomy and Meteorology (DAM), Structure and Constituents of Matter (DECM) and Fundamental Physics (DFF); they are all members of this Institute (ICC) and some of them are also linked to the Catalan Institute for Space Studies (IEEC). Provision is also made for the participation of external experts.

Master in Synchrotron Radiation and Particle Accelerators

This Master offers two lines of study:

  1. A line designed for gaining the knowledge and the practice required for carrying out subsequent work at a synchrotron or other particle accelerators.
  2. A line that allows one to gain the knowledge and the skills in order to be able to use these facilities in any of the lines of research that one has been developing.

The master’s program is coordinated by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, as well as the Universitat de Barcelona, Universitat Politècnica de Barcelona and CELLS.
