Program Description

Master in Physics

University of Padova

Course description

The program deepens the knowledge of basic elements of modern physics (atomic and molecular physics, solid state physics, nuclear and particle physics, astrophysics) and of theoretical physics (analytical mechanics, quantum mechanics, mathematical and numerical methods). It is possible to strengthen the knowledge of specific fields like biophysics, nanoscience, physics of matter, nuclear and particle physics, physics of the fundamental interactions, astrophysics. Finally, the program provides direct experience of the laboratory techniques and computer calculation techniques and data analysis.

The graduate in Physics will know and understand the most relevant phenomena of the physical world at different scales, starting from the macroscopic world down to the atomic physics, the physics of condensed matter, nuclear and subnuclear physics up to the physics of the universe. The understanding of the physical world will be based on experimental evidence and a proper use of the theoretical modeling and its mathematical instruments, including numerical techniques.

Course structure

The second-cycle degree in Physics is divided into three curricula to be chosen by the student: Physics of the fundamental interactions, Physics of matter and Physics of the universe.

Career opportunities

The graduate in Physics can have jobs opportunities in Italy and abroad in industries involving new technologies regardless of the final products, in service companies aiming to innovation and, more generally, in all activities requiring understanding and modeling of processes and ability in analysis and testing. These include startups and high tech industries, software and consulting companies, research centers and public administration. They can also teach physics and mathematics in schools of different levels.

Entry requirements

Selection of candidates is based on academic record (congruence of bachelor studies and merit). The evaluation of the CV of the candidates can be followed by a Skype interview.

Language requirements

B2 level reading and listening.
