The master degree programme in Physics is designed to provide graduates with an excellent scientific grounding, a good command of scientific methodology, sound knowledge of new technologies and the capacity to use advanced methods and sophisticated tools to tackle and resolve a diverse range of problems.
The master's degree programme in Physics equips students with solid training in classical and modern physics, a good command of methods of scientific investigation, thorough knowledge of mathematical tools, modern measurement tools and data analysis techniques, a firm grasp of computer support tools, and advanced training in the spheres of theoretical and experimental physics.
The goal is to prepare graduates to carry out scientific research autonomously, work with a high degree of autonomy, assume positions of responsibility in projects and facilities, apply their specialist knowledge to the modelling of complex systems in the fields of applied sciences, and possess the necessary knowledge basis to teach Physics in secondary schools.
The master's degree programme in Physics is also designed to hone the aptitudes in physical and mathematical modelling initially acquired by students during the foundation courses of the degree programme, which can also prove a valid resource for occupations not directly connected with physics.
The course also prepares graduates to work in diverse sectors of the industry and in scientific education. Career opportunities for graduates in Physics include:
Application and admission: Open with entry requirements examination.
Students must have level B2 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B2 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.The thesis work is often carried out in prestigious research centers like CERN or GSI, or important Universities worldwide, in the frame of international collaborations and research programs.
Mandatory for laboratory courses, recommended for other teaching activities.
