Learn to use numerical and mathematical techniques to contribute with scientific solutions to the known and unknown problems of the future, by studying the Computational physics profile of the Physics Master’s programme at Chalmers University of Technology. You will receive extensive training in modern physics, and learn to identify and apply relevant computational methods to investigate issues at the forefront of the field.
In the Computational physics profile, you will cover molecular physics, computational continuum physics, plasma physics, and quantum computing in particular depth, including the following courses:
● Computational physics
● Computational materials and molecular physics
● Computational continuum physics
● Plasma physics with applications
● Advanced simulation and machine learning
● Quantum computing
This master's programme as a whole is intended for those with a strong interest in theoretical, computational, and experimental aspects of physics and astronomy. You will learn to identify and explain general aspects of physics that are integral to applications in engineering and natural sciences.
The core courses of the programme focus on giving you a solid understanding of the fundamental principles of physics, thereby preparing you for a future driven by knowledge and technology.
Wider topics range from the subatomic to cosmological scale, covering complex phenomena relevant in fields such as quantum technology, nanomaterials, and living matter. The programme encourages creative thinking, critical evaluation, and engineering skills grounded in the fundamental principles of the physical world.
You will graduate with expertise in problem-solving and in advanced experimental and theoretical techniques, making you highly attractive to national and international employers in the private and public sectors alike. The programme is an excellent preparation for all manner of diverse careers in fields that benefit from quantitative and analytical thinking – industrial research, consulting, teaching, research and more. Further studies and a career in academia is also another route that you will be well placed to follow.
