Instrumentation in High Energy Physics - Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Instrumentation in High Energy Physics complements  a graduate students’ degree in the field of instrumentation applicable to high energy physics.
The TRAIN-MI program will bring together MSU’s strengths to formulate a curriculum addressing three major areas: (1) advanced sensors for particle and radiation detection, including quantum devices; (2) application-specific front-end electronics and data acquisition’ and (3) systems design and engineering for complex instrumentation, including in extreme radiation, temperature, and low-background environments.

Requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Instrumentation in High Energy Physics

Students must complete 9 credits from the following:
1. One of the following courses that includes instruction on particle interactions with matter. The topic must be approved by the Physics and Astronomy Graduate Program Director.
CEM 985 Selected Topics in Nuclear Chemistry 3
PHY 959 Special Topics in High Energy Physics 3
2. Complete 6 credits from the following list of approved courses, or any other 800 or 900- level accelerator science-focused courses as approved by the Physics and Astronomy Graduate Program Director.
CEM 985 Selected Topics in Nuclear Chemistry 3
HRT 860 Scientific Writing Workshop 3
PHY 905 Special Problems 3
PHY 959 Special Topics in High Energy Physics 3
Topics in CEM 985 and PHY 959 must be different than the topic used to fulfill requirement 1. above and must be approved by the Physics and Astronomy Graduate Program Director.
Students are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 in all courses in the certificate.
