Compare 11 Masters Programs in Applied Physics

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

What does it consist of?

Throughout the past century scientific research has been characterized by a progressive specialization and compartmentalization of knowledge, it being very difficult for a person to dominate more than one scientific field. Despite the success of this program based on a reductionist approach, the new scientific challenges require a broader vision and the establishment of synergies between research groups of different disciplines that allow to go beyond the traditional frontiers of knowledge. In particular, complex systems are characterized by the existence of emergent properties and collective behaviors generated by the interaction between a large number of elements.... [-]

Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study at university. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from the interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in topology - one of the purest branches of mathematics. Advances in the understanding of chaos provide another example. Ideas from the theory are being applied increasingly in the modeling of complex physical systems such as the atmosphere and lasers.

The Warwick joint courses (BSc and MMathPhys) are now among the best-established in the country with around 50 students starting each year. The courses include a significant proportion of modules from both contributing departments designed primarily for joint degree students. It is possible at the end of the First Year to transfer to either of the single subject degrees. Years one and two are common to the two courses.... [-]
