MSc in Fusion Energy

Fusion research is entering an exciting new era with several large facilities aiming to achieve the crucial milestone of net energy gain. As such there is a growing international need to train physicists to meet the challenge of fusion energy.  Our 12-month Master's course provides a firm foundation in fusion physics.  It is an ideal course to prepare students for a PhD in fusion energy or for employment in fusion laboratories.

Centre for Doctoral Training

Fusion CDT

The York Plasma Institute leads the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Technology of Fusion Energy, which is a collaborative programme between five world-class universities - Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and York - together with major fusion organisations including ITER, National Ignition Facility, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, Central Laser Facility, AWE, Fusion for Energy, and industry such as AMEC and Frazer Nash.
The programme will support and train PhD students in plasma physics, materials science and advanced instrumentation. No prior knowledge is necessary as full training will be provided during the programme, which also involves many exciting, fully funded opportunities to work with leading fusion organisations, both within in the UK and abroad.

More information on the programme, including how to apply, can be found on the Fusion CDT website.
