The course of studies in order to achieve the Master's Degree in Physics has two years of attendance, including the time needed for the preparation of the final examination. For the achievement of this Master's Degree it is necessary to acquire 120 CFU (university credits) by passing 10 exams in specific subjects and related characterizing the Study Programme. The degree gives access to doctoral courses in physics or other scientific-technological areas or second-level master.
In the study program is strengthened and refined the basic training in physics, awarded the three-year degree, while also providing the frontier physics. In the study program will also reflect the research activities carried out in the Department of Physics from both university teachers and researchers of the sections of the bodies of the National Research present locally (INFN, INAF, CNR).
The course provides:
depth knowledge of the key topics of contemporary physics: relativity, analytical mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, atomic and molecular physics, solid state physics, nuclear physics and elementary particles, astrophysics and radio astronomy
sound knowledge of mathematical methods for physics and numerical and computational methods
learning the most advanced laboratory techniques and computer calculation techniques
a deepening of elements of related subjects: mathematics, chemistry, biology, materials science, electronics, medical physics
Graduates of the master's degree in physics have a conceptual and experimental preparation recognized and appreciated at national and international level in research, teaching, and in many areas of production activities. Apart from the specific preparation on the physical materials, in fact, they have acquired during the course of studies a remarkable ability to apply the theoretical and experimental methods learned also in fields other than physics.
The reference document for students regarding the complete presentation of the degree course and 'the Single Sheet Annual Course of Studies (ITS-CdS). The information on the card can be found in the site's national repository Universitaly.it
Function in a work environment
A graduate in physics has a curriculum that allows you to perform multiple functions: - Researcher - Technical working in various fields related to the use or development of physical and mathematical models, to attivita 'laboratory activities in the field of electronics and information - scientific advisor, responsible for technology transfer - designer and developer of advanced tools or software for scientific applications - in charge in the field of training / information - teacher
Skills associated with the function
Graduates of the master's degree in physics have a conceptual and experimental preparation recognized and appreciated at national and international level in many areas of production activities. Apart from the specific preparation on the physical materials, in fact, they have acquired during the course of studies a remarkable ability in 'apply theoretical and experimental methods learned also in fields other than physics.
Graduates can enter it with great success in the following areas: - scientific research at universities and public and private research institutions at various levels, after completing the required training of doctoral type - teaching in the school, once the process of enabling teaching and outdated competitions required by law - popularization of scientific culture with different aspects, theoretical, experimental and applied, from physics to classical physics and modern technology applications - transfer of technological know-how developed in the search for according to different types of production systems - application of modeling methods, I learned in the studies, to complex realities other than scientific ones (industries with all kinds of productions, financial markets, consulting companies, sectors dell'econophysics) - development scientific and technological innovation in areas related to physical disciplines. Particularly in the electronics industry, telecommunications, information technology, biomedical, environment, nano-technology and ICT for energy production, health, cultural heritage. Consistent with this perspective have been included among the supplementary related areas: ING-IND / 22, ING-INF / 01 and BIO / 11.
