Program Description

Master in Physics and Technology of Advanced Materials

Universitatea De Vest Din Timisoara

The Faculty of Physics offers a Bachelor's program (with three specializations: physics, medical physics, and informatics-physics) and three Master's programs tightly connected to the research performed by the faculty members. Two of the master's programs are given completely in English. These programs are designed to prepare students not only for advanced studies in physics but also for employment upon graduation in physics and other disciplines related to science and technology. Talented students can continue the Master's program with a doctoral project in the Doctoral school of the faculty which is focused on three main topics: materials physics, theoretical and computational physics and medical physics.

The Masters in Physics and Technology of Advanced Materials taught în English, focuses on understanding and manipulating the physical properties of materials to discover new features with application relevance.

Main course titles

  • Complements of theoretical physics.

The West University of Timisoara is one of the accredited universities in Romania to organize the Preparatory Year of Romanian Language. This language course is mandatory for students who wish to study in Romanian language and don’t have a language certificate in this sense. During the Preparatory Year students acquire the requisite knowledge of Romanian language as well and specific knowledge correlated with future training profile (anatomy, physics, chemistry, drawing technical etc.) if the curriculum is organized in Romanian.
