Master of Science (Advanced) in Precision Instrumentation and Measurement

Summary

CRICOS course code: 099249A
Level of study: Postgraduate

Measurement is at the heart of scientific discovery, and the frontiers of knowledge are expanded through the development of new and more precise instrumentation. This program draws on the history and current expertise of three leading research schools at ANU: the Research School of Physics and Engineering, the Research School of Earth Sciences, and the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Each of these Schools are at the forefront of modern scientific research and have outstanding pedigree in the development of advanced scientific instrumentation. You will be learning from ANU scientists who have worked on projects including: * the design and development of instrumentation for the Nobel-prize winning discovery of gravitational waves * a high-resolution ion microprobe for geological analysis * a high-resolution x-ray computed tomography instrument for the study of porous and disordered materials, and * an integral-field spectrograph for an international, next-generation, thirty-meter class optical telescope.
In this program you have the opportunity to learn the most advanced techniques for studying the heavens, the Earth, and everything in-between. The interdisciplinary expertise you acquire will impact on diverse areas of fundamental scientific research as well as industrial applications. The program aims to produce graduates with deep insight and creative know-how to pursue related careers in science, industry and government, with a focus on innovation, teamwork, and getting results. The degree is a mix of course work and projects, comprising individual and group-based research.
This Advanced program incorporates a research project and thesis.
