Program Description

Engineering Physics

Politecnico di Milano

Mission and goals

The main educational objective of this Master of Science programme is to prepare an engineer able to “produce” innovation both in the industrial environment as well as in basic research and which is highly competitive in the global market, with particular reference to the physical and optical technology, nanotechnology and photonic sectors.

The physical engineer can approach all sectors in which advanced technological systems are developed: lasers, photonics, materials technology, biomedical optics, etc.

The course has two possible finalizations:

  • Nano-optics and Photonics
  • Nano and Physical Technologies

Eligible students

Students holding a Bachelor degree in Physics Engineering, Industrial Engineering or Information Engineering and at least 15 years of education are eligible for application. The Commission will evaluate case by case students with different background.

Career opportunities

The graduate in Engineering Physics can approach all those sectors in which advanced technological systems are developed, such as lasers and their applications, photonics, vacuum applications, materials technology and biomedical optics.

The physical engineer can therefore find employment in companies working in the fields of materials engineering and optical technologies; companies which use innovative systems and technologies; public and private research centres; companies operating in the physical, optical and photonic technologies and diagnostics market.
