Research & Teaching
Physics education at the University of Antwerpen is organised in a bachelor/master structure. The bachelor programme includes the necessary basic knowledge of physics and mathematics. The master programme is a training at an advanced level, followed by a specialisation in one of the following domains: elementary particle physics, solid state and nanophysics, bio- and medical physics, computational physics and theoretical physics. These specialisations reflect the research strengths of the Physics Department.

The Particle Physics group at the University of Antwerp has a long and outstanding tradition in experimental and phenomenological research concerning particle collisions as conducted by the largest particle accelerators in the world. Our research focuses on the study of quantum-chromodynamics and the search for Higgs boson. The Particle Physics group participates in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), situated at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland.
