International Physics MSc (LASCALA)

Description of the programme

Title of the programme: International Physics MSc (LASCALA)

Degree: MSc in Physics, Specialized in Large Scale Facilities in Accelerators and Lasers (LASCALA)

Duration of the course: 4 semesters

Language of tuition: English

Description of the programme:

The LASCALA master aims at training experts in the most advanced experimental and theoretical tools and concepts in accelerators, high power lasers and associated advanced sources, as well as in their applications for science and society. The LASCALA master is coordinated by Paris-Saclay University (France), with Lund University (Sweden), La Sapienza University Rome (Italy) and the University of Szeged (Hungary) as partners. The students will be ready to develop innovative ideas and enterprises related to large scale facilities.

Students will start with the first semester in Paris Saclay, continue with the second in either La Sapienza Rome or Lund, then with the third in either Szeged or Saclay Paris. The location of the fourth semester is by choice of the student to perform the research necessary for the Masters Thesis in the framework of an internship in the academic sector or in the industry.

The programme includes classes, tutorials, project- and research-based trainings. Students will take advantage of seminars by international speakers, up-to-date technology demonstrations, as well as visits and practices on large scale facilities (e.g. Synchrotron SOLEIL, Pettawatt laser APOLLON, Proton Therapy Centre of Orsay, Lund Laser Centre, MaxIV synchrotron, ELI Beamlines laser facility, SPARC particle accelerator, FLAME multiterrawatt laser, CERN, ITER Tokamak, Laser Mégajoule (LMJ), etc.)
An intensive summer school also fosters the students' entrepreneurial skills including economy management, communication, patent law, and technology transfer courses so they can face the job market.
