For a physicist physical phenomena are fascinating questions to investigate. As an student you apply your knowledge of these phenomena in new technological developments.
The program gives you the opportunity to get involved in physical phenomena, new technologies, and measurement methods. These are based on technical applications of physical principles in the most diverse disciplines. The course consists to a large extent of internships, so that you will learn how to apply your technical and scientific knowledge in a research environment. The Applied Physics department opts for an integrated approach to teaching and research at an internationally competitive level.
An important characteristic is the fact that the program is strongly focused on building bridges between fundamental science and technological applications. This is made possible by the strong contacts that the department maintains with the high-tech companies in the Eindhoven region, as well as in the rest of the Netherlands and beyond. A large part of this program consists of elective courses and internships.The extensive freedom of choice means you can, to a large extent, define the content of your study program to match your own preferences.
Why Study Applied Physics at Einhoven University of Technology?
An important characteristic of the Master’s program in Applied Physics in Eindhoven is the fact that the program is strongly focused on building bridges between fundamental science and technological applications. This is made possible by the intensive contacts that the Applied Physics department maintains with the high-tech companies in the Eindhoven region, as well as in the rest of the Netherlands and beyond.
Applied Physics Specializations
In the second year of your Master degree program you will work on a final project in one of the tracks that, to a large extent, match the research focal areas of the department. You can choose to carry out your project within the department (only for international students) or at another university. It is also possible to carry out the project at a company in the Netherlands or abroad. The four specialisations (Master tracks) are:
- Functional (Nano-)Materials / Nano-Engineering: analyzing, constructing and manipulating materials at nanometer scale;
- Transport Physics: fundamental aspects of transport processes in fluids and gases;
- Plasma Physics: plasmas and their applications, and applications of ion beams;
- Nuclear Fusion
Elective subjects; Specialization Courses in Physics; Research and Development (internship), Research Project.
Masters of Science in Applied Physics are able to keep up with and initiate new developments in their field of specialization, but also in a more generalistic way.
