The electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism lies at the heart of the standard model of the fundamental interactions, as it describes the mass of elementary particles and unitarises the scattering cross-section for vector bosons. Since the first confirmation with the discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, this mechanism is undergoing precision tests. In this seminar, a study of vector boson scattering with the CMS detector will be presented, together with future prospects in view of the forthcoming LHC data.
