Physics

Physics is one of the most applicable sciences in existence and can lead to careers in technology, sports and games, space science, sound engineering in music and television, and a lot more. A Master in Physics is an excellent choice for students seeking exciting and promising careers in a variety of settings.

Although Physics is defined as the study of matter as well as energy and interaction between the two, physicists also answer large questions like: how did the world come to being? How is the universe changing as we speak? These are deep, philosophical questions which physicists attempt to answer through scientific knowledge. With a Master in Physics, students will explore these questions and more.

If you want to be a part of this groundbreaking science, then perhaps a Master in Physics is the path for you. On this site you will find an array of programs from many countries that offer Master in Physics degrees. Not only are these programs in just Physics, but also Electronics and Communications, Laser Science and Nanomaterial. So if you're interested in a Master in Physics, this is the place to be.

Campus Full time 1 year October 2018 Spain Palma de Mallorca

The objective of the University Master in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (FAMA) is to provide an advanced training, specially oriented to graduate students aiming to enter later in a Doctorate program. [+]

What is it? The objective of the University Master in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (FAMA) is to provide an advanced training, specially oriented to graduate students aiming to enter later in a Doctorate program. It is then a Master basically oriented towards research. This requires a structure making possible the specialization in some research areas with a premium quality. The UIB is awarded with the mention of International Excellence Campus, including the line of Physics, Computing and Applications. In this line, there are some research groups that have been developing an internationallevel first rank task during years. This is why five specialties are offered, directly related with those groups: Relativity and Astrophysics, Geophysical Fluids, Materials Physics, Quantum Systems , and Applied Mathematics. Most of the socially relevant problems have many faces, and addressing them requires both general vision and the ability to connect ideas. In this context, the Master is not offering specialties as watertight compartments. The student can rather choose a reasonable number of complementary credits coming from other specialties, different from the selected one. What will you learn During the past century, scientific research has reached a high degree of specialization, with a refined division of the subjects of study. On the other side, most of the problems which are socially relevant are polifacetic. The scientist with a multidisciplinary background is in good position for developping his research tasks beyond the borders of his own domain, being able to collaborate with researchers from other disciplines and providing...

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything. The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including: astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing, but also modules in philosophy and modern languages. Please download the course booklet for more information. Below is a list of the individual modules in each year and more detail on their content can be found by following the links above. THE FOUR-YEAR DEGREE COURSE (MPhys) Students can opt for the four-year version of the degree. This has been designed primarily for students who are thinking of a career which makes substantial use of their knowledge of Physics. The first two years are the same as for the BSc.
