The Applied Physics Master’s Programme combines elements of a standard master’s programme in engineering with more theoretical courses.
The Applied Physics program deals with new physical theories, techniques and measuring methods. It is about technical applications of physical principles in the most divergent disciplines. You gain more insight into physical phenomena and you learn to develop and apply technical and scientific knowledge.
Applied Physics covers phenomena ranging from the infinitesimally small – subatomic particles – to the unimaginably large – the universe. The Applied Physics Master Program combines elements of a standard master’s program in engineering with more theoretical courses.
You will not only explore the mechanisms and limits of the physical world, but also gain insights into how the application of advanced physics contributes to advancements in nanotechnology, seismic exploration, robotics, medical imaging, biophysics, communications technology and energy-efficient industrial processing. Applied physics is all about translating a deep understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of physics into concrete results to benefit society.
In the programme you will gain knowledge and hands-on experience in experimental techniques, theoretical analysis, simulation and modelling. You will work on research projects, including a master’s thesis project, together with fellow students and professionals from the university, industryand research institutes, learning to translate the abstract into the practical, and to effectively communicate your insights as an applied physicist in a global context.
