A Master of Science (MSc) in Applied Physics is a degree that can open up many career doors for students interested in a wide range of applications. This exciting field of study is offered at many universities around the world.

What is an MSc in Applied Physics?  The coursework for this multi-disciplinary degree focuses on the fundamentals, including mathematics, physics, and engineering. Students take an applied rather than a pure approach to science and math, meaning they study general methods for designing new technologies rather than actually designing something in particular. Graduates work on the cutting edge of many types of technology, making this field ideal for those who want to be part of the latest developments in science.

Students that come from a variety of backgrounds may begin a course of study in applied physics. They may already have degrees in science, math, engineering, or even architecture. Another benefit of pursuing this degree is that there are programs at numerous institutions in many different countries. Similarly, employers are located in many desirable locations around the world.

The cost of obtaining an MSc in Applied Physics will vary depending on a variety of circumstances. Programs vary from country to country and from institution to institution. The cost of completing degrees will vary accordingly.

Many graduates find themselves working in research and development within both academic and industry settings. Applied physicists are behind many of the latest technological advancements, from the cellular phone to the laser used in DVD players. Graduates frequently get promotions into management positions within a few years of finishing their degrees. They also find themselves working on sophisticated applications in the biosciences, creating technologies that save lives.

One of the most important things a person can do for himself or herself is to complete an education. Visiting our website is a great way to start exploring this amazing career opportunity.

The FUSION-EP master programme has been selected in the list of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) funded by the European Union. From the academic year starting in Sept. 2021, fifteen scholarships (including the participation fees and a monthly allowance) are awarded to the applicants with the highest profile. Among these scholarships, about twelve are awarded to applicants from Partner Countries. The FUSION-EP programme, created in 2006, aims at training the next generations of magnetic confinement fusion physicists and engineers. Since the academic year 2019/2020, FUSION-EP shifted the coordination from the University of Gent to Aix-Marseille University in order to put forward new objectives. The FUSION-EP programme is organized in two periods of increasing specialization in two different countries until the 3rd semester's distinct track possibilities: Fusion Sciences and Fusion Technology. A very comprehensive insight into the cutting-edge R&D in nuclear fusion is guaranteed by the broad range of expertise available in the Consortium. -
