The Quantum Matter study path of the Master programme in Physics, prepares the students to R&D work in areas of modern solid state physics, quantum technologies, quantum information and research on fundamental quantum mechanics. It connects the students with the fast emerging industries related to quantum technologies and the corresponding job market.
The programme kickstarts with general experimental and data analytical tools, and deepening of theoretical concepts. It then offers the students the possibility to dive into the concepts and methodologies of quantum optics and quantum information, and connected domains such as nanoscale technologies and superconductivity and more.
The programme represents two years of full time studies (120 credits), out which 30, 45 or 60 credits are allocated to the master thesis project. Within the programme there is a lot of freedom to choose the courses that best suit your interests and your physics profile. There is also room for you to broaden your competence thanks to a large number of facultative and optional courses.
The Quantum Matter study path is proposed to guide you towards the corresponding emerging technologies, and makes you a good candidate for corresponding jobs or PhD positions. Some built-in flexibility allows for some optional courses to be taken in other areas.
With a combination of mandatory, eligible and optional courses you acquire a solid base in analysis of data, experimental physics and experimental methodology. This is complemented by at least one theoretical course. The last phase of the programme consists of the master thesis project. We offer the possibility to carry out long projects, up to one year. Knowledge and skills acquired in the programme find applications in many areas of industry and research.
