A masters degree in Applied Physics equips students with knowledge that enables them to contribute to technological development. This program enables one understand the world around them and the way it develops. Generally, a masters degree program in Applied Physics focus on both common topics for the whole class as well as specialization in one of the three main areas, which include: experimental, theoretical and computational techniques.

Applied Physics is a science that is based on experiments, measurements and mathematical analysis in order to find laws for everything from micro-cosmos to macro-cosmos. If not for creative people with sound knowledge in Applied Physics, no man would have set his feet on the moon, and no parent would have got the chance to watch his or her children on ultrasound. From the knowledge of applied physics, transistors and lasers, which provide the basic knowledge for computer development and communication, were made. Applied physics is the mother of almost all-technological development.

A masters program in Applied Physics focuses on future scientific solutions and technological innovations. The program places emphasis in material physics, biotechnical physics, and theory and modeling physics. Examples of current engineering pursuits through applied physics are the next generation car batteries, nano-color routing antennas and nano-chip solutions.

The masters program provides a broad knowledge that one can apply in several fields. A typical career path for a Master in Applied Physics begins with a position in the research and development department. After a few years of experience in research and development, many Masters graduates in applied physics move into project management

The FUSION-EP master programme has been selected in the list of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) funded by the European Union. From the academic year starting in Sept. 2020, fifteen scholarships (including the participation fees and a monthly allowance) will be awarded to the applicants with the highest profile. Among these scholarships, about twelve will be awarded to applicants from Partner Countries. The FUSION-EP program, created in 2006, aims at training the next generations of magnetic confinement fusion physicists and engineers. Since the academic year 2019/2020, FUSION-EP shifted the coordination from the University of Gent to Aix-Marseille University in order to put forward new objectives. The FUSION-EP program is organized in two periods of increasing specialization in two different countries until the 3rd semester's distinct track possibilities: Fusion Sciences and Fusion Technology. A very comprehensive insight into the cutting-edge R&D in nuclear fusion is guaranteed by the broad range of expertise available in the Consortium. -

Physical Anthropology is a Knowledge Area within Biological Sciences that studies human diversity and its closest relatives, non-human primates. Its main objective is to provide a comprehensive vision of the mechanisms that generate variability in its evolutionary, ecological, ontogenetic and gender aspects, a vision that also allows us to assess the biological consequences of recent environmental change (including that related to value systems and behaviors) on biological processes and patterns of health and disease in human populations. -
