Physics is an extremely broad and dynamic science. Our department consists of about 55 staff members and 70 postdocs and PhD students, and 350 students that follow bachelor and master degrees in Physics, Medical Natural Sciences and Science, Business and Innovation.
The frontier of high-energy physics is "the even smaller" and that of astrophysics is "the ever larger". Ultimate aim is to unravel the mechanisms underlying our present theory of particle physics and enhance our understanding of the structure and evolution of the cosmos.
