The physicist master studies-based programme was founded by four universities under the sponsorship of the EUGLOH Alliance. The integrated study programme named Large Scale Accelerators and Lasers (LASCALA) collaborates with large mainframe partners, such as the ELI ALPS Research Facility in order to train future experts of this field.
Besides the University of Szeged, two of its EUGLOH partners, Paris-Saclay University and the University of Lund, as well as the Sapienza University of Rome worked on developing the study programme. 13 research and technical institutions joined the initiation, providing a unique scientific background for the project.
By the means of the LASCALA project, from the 2021 autumn semester the four universities will launch a new Master’s degree that will help students to study multiple technological and scientific platforms all across Europe, thus helping them to form a global approach towards high-level technology. The programme also provides laboratory research opportunities including the use of special mainframes, such as the super laser at ELI ALPS Szeged.
The students can send their first semester at the Paris-Saclay University then carry on with the second semester at the University of Lund or the Sapienza University of Rome. During the third semester they can choose courses at the University of Szeged or Paris-Saclay University, the fourth and final semester is the time for internship and preparing the thesis. By the end the students will acquire either a double degree or a multiple degree, depending on how many courses they undertake.
