Physics visit to CERN, Geneva
Tuesday 20 March 2018
Earlier this year, students and staff flew to the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN), Gneva, Switzerland.
CERN is the international centre for research into particle physics, equipped with a World leading, 27km radius Large Hadron Particle Collider, enabling us to investigate the ways in which the origins of matter and the universe itself are probed.
The trip itself is best summed up by one of the student participants: 'Visiting CERN was a great opportunity to see how far the field of Physics has come and what the future holds for this amazing subject. Thanks to my degree, I've been able to understand how the accelerators work, and this was a really rewarding feeling and further motivates me to succeed in my studies. It has helped push my desire to learn new physics, and pass on what I've learnt to others.'
