The Centre for Plasma Physics at Queen’s University Belfast together with the National Centre for Plasma Science and Technology at Dublin City University offer web-based, taught modules in Plasma and Vacuum Technology.
The modules and their delivery are designed for part-time study and specifically to accommodate those in full time employment and so do not require attendance at either University.
The modules can be taken individually or can be combined, over several years if necessary, to form the basis of a Master of Science (MSc) in Plasma and Vacuum Technology.
This requires the successful completion of a research project, which often can be undertaken in the student’s place of work, arranged locally or through internet supervision of computer-based simulations. Alternatively a Postgraduate Diploma can be awarded for module work alone.
For research students or employees who need to acquire quickly a basic knowledge of plasma physics, there is a 4 week “Introduction to Plasma Physics” module available. All other modules are taught over 8 or 12 weeks.
Queen’s University Belfast also offers a similarly taught master’s course on Plasma Physics.
