Synopsis:

Experimental project is a two-semestral course that represents the final degree of practical education of students in the experimental nuclear physics. Project has a form of a work on designated project and the topic of the project is chosen such that it is complementary to the theoretical knowledge in experimental nuclear physics. Students are encouraged to form work-groups and each of them solves a particular task on this project. Finally, students attempt to propose and build and perform the experiment and then process the results to scientific output.

The goal of the second semester is to build the apparatus according to the proposal, perform the experiment and analyze the data. Technical design report of the apparatus is the final result of this course.
