Course content

Ghent University is the only university in Flanders to offer a Master of Science in Engineering Physics. Alumni of this master has solid physical know-how and the necessary skills to have a leading role in groundbreaking physics research. At the same time, they have the engineering skills that make them wanted as innovators and developers in the industry, research institutes, and universities. The engineering component of the master’s program develops skills such as analysis, design and optimization of existing and new systems, products, machines, and materials. This involves approximating physical reality by system descriptions ranging from simple rules of thumb to expert systems. The physical component follows a reductionist approach where experiment and mathematical modeling aim at understanding and reducing physics to its basics, and deriving its governing equations. Despite the more philosophical approach, a rigorous attitude remains essential and all physical theory has to withstand experimental validation.... [-]

MScs in Natural Sciences in Flanders in Belgium.

Our society is facing a number of key challenges, such as the sustainable use and management of the natural resources of our planet (water, soil, mineral resources and energy), and the protection of our population and infrastructure against the natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic activity and climate change) that come with living on a dynamic planet.

For a geologist “global change” is a familiar topic, with a variety of facets. Our planet is an incredibly dynamic and perpetually changing system and unraveling it is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. To achieve this, a fundamental knowledge of the composition, structure, evolution and functioning of our planet is required.... [-]

Course content

We owe our current quality of life to developments in the exact sciences in general and more specifically to chemistry. Chemistry has had, and continues to have a major influence on numerous branches of Science, such as medicine, biology, agriculture and geology, but also connects to sciences such as physics and mathematics, establishing it as a truly central science. The impact of chemistry is omnipresent in industry: numerous areas of industry involve chemistry, including for example production, quality control but also product improvement and waste processing. Innovation and the development of new products and processes are simply not possible without a fundamental knowledge of chemistry. The structure of matter and insights into molecular processes and reactions contribute to scientific breakthroughs that will address current and future challenges.... [-]

Without mathematical tools, there would be no internet search engines, no weather forecast, no security in banking. Mathematical models and techniques play an important role in automatic pilot technologies, the design of quieter cars, the optimisation of wind farms, medical scanners, etc. At first sight, these applications have little in common, but they all process a large amount of data. Mathematics is becoming critical in many applications because of increasing model complexity and higher demands from customers and the environment.

The International Master of Science in Soils and Global Change (IMSOGLO) programme aims at teaching the knowledge, tools, technologies and applications in the context of ... [+]

Increased population pressure, industrialisation and intensive land use are causing depletion of natural resources and are limiting the performance of land with respect to its functions such as biomass production, carbon sequestration, water purification, etcetera. The additive effects of climate change and the above-mentioned aspects of global change influence the capacity of soils to regenerate and may even cause soil degradation.

The future capacity of soils to support (human) life is at stake. Programmes have been developed to protect the environment and to increase ecosystem resilience. Numerous directives on soil response to external pressures have been developed and implemented. A wealth of scientific knowledge is available but dispersed due to the specialisation of research groups, which makes it difficult for students to follow a focused curriculum on soils and global change at any individual university....
