About the programme
The Master in Physics aims at forming students with skills in different areas of physics, based on a solid interdisciplinary scientific background. Graduates in Physics are appreciated for their openminded, multi-disciplinary attitude and their ability to apply a scientific approach to the analysis of complex problems.
Applied Physics curriculum
Students will acquire a solid knowledge in topics of interest in applied Physics, particularly with an emphasis on experimental aspects.
The absence of a compulsory course allows students to plan their tailor-made curriculum. Depending on the chosen ECTS, students develop advanced skills in Medical Physics, Biophysics, Complex Systems, Computing, or Statistical Techniques for Data Analysis.
Materials Physics and Nanoscience curriculum
Students will acquire a solid background in all areas of condensed matter physics, with emphasis on the properties of nanostructures. They also will:
have a deep understanding of condensed matter Physics in all its experimental and theoretical aspects;
manage experimental and modelling tools for the analyses of materials and nanostructures.
Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics curriculum
Students will acquire a solid knowledge of nuclear and subnuclear physics, with emphasis on experimental aspects. The Programme is enriched by courses covering the basic principles of theoretical physics. Students can also develop advanced skills in electronics, computing, or statistical techniques. They also will:
acquire advanced skills aimed at the deep understanding of phenomena related to the state-of-the-art experimental research fields;
be able to discuss the applications of nuclear and subnuclear physics in modern society.
Theoretical Physics curriculum
Students will acquire a solid background in all areas of theoretical physics, with emphasis on quantum field theoretical techniques applied to particles and strings, general relativity and cosmology, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics. They also will:
have a deep understanding of contemporary physics in its theoretical and fundamental aspects;
know advanced mathematical and numerical tools for describing and modelling physical systems.
