Teaching resources

PPFE contributes to the education of physicists and engineers by offering courses in plasma physics and fusion energy.

Master Course “Plasma Physics” course number 10400, Technological Specialisation Course, (Physics and Nanotechnology)

The objective of the course is to give the students an understanding of what plasma is, how it behaves, and in which scientific and industrial contexts plasmas appear. Particular attention is given to the understanding of plasmas that are encountered in the development of fusion energy. The course will give the student insight into how the dynamics in plasma is modelled mathematically, and on the basis of simplified models give the student the ability to model fundamental plasma phenomena. The acquired knowledge from this course provides a foundation for advanced studies of fusion plasmas, astrophysical plasmas and technological plasmas that, among other applications, are used for nano-structuring of surfaces and a broad set of industrial processes.

The section furthermore participates in various courses related to sustainable energy with contributions on fusion energy on graduate as well as postgraduate level. PPFE is chairing the Fusion research and education activities under the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research – SDC. With main contributions to the yearly SDC Autumn School on Plasma Physics and Technology.

PPFE is involved in the education of the Science-Talenter at the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Videncenter in Sorø in the Master Class on Fusion Physics.

The section offers possibilities for projects on all levels including Bachelor-, Master-, and PhD-projects, within in our key areas of research. Several project proposals are listed in the project base under DTU Physics.
