Physics programme content
In previous years, students have learned to look at a problem/physical situation using three different tools: the mathematics of calculus; performing experiments; and simulating the situation using a computer.
In 2020, students learned about the Large Hadron Collider, the largest and most powerful particle beam experiment in the world, and its mission to explore the fundamental particles and forces of our universe. Students were taught about the success of the standard model in describing these particles along with its problems that led to the postulation and subsequent recent discovery of the Higgs particle. This ultimately enabled them to answer the question... What is the Higgs good for?
“I really enjoyed the chance to hear about different departments, (particularly from different students' perspectives), and also seeing the strong link between Imperial's courses and current research.”
