Open Day: Chemistry and Physics
Explore the world from an atomic and molecular level.
Or learn about physical laws that underpin the structure of matter and the nature of the universe. It’s also an exciting time to join one of the fastest growing, and most talked about industries; space.

An important matter
A powerful combination of disciplines, theorists and experimentalists, and a global connections make the University of Adelaide a great place to study.
The University of Adelaide is playing a leading role in understanding the fundamental physics that will tell us how the universe fits together. The Special Research Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) and Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale (CoEPP) provide expertise in Quantum chromodynamics and the simulation power to realise it.
Our members also work on the ATLAS project at CERN to make the next major breakthrough after the discovery of the Higgs Boson. We're also leading the way to finding Dark Matter through involvement at the Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory.
