The Applied Physics programme is designed to educate students to be able to stay at the forefront of fundamental understanding, and to develop practical applications. Applied physics is about translating a deep understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of physics into concrete results to benefit society.
The programme will provide you with the knowledge, insights and skills required to perform independent professional and scientific activities in the area of applied physics at the level of a Master of Science.
During the programme, you will acquire fundamental knowledge of and hands-on experience with 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, industry and research institutes. By doing so, you will learn to translate the abstract into the practical and to effectively communicate your insights as an applied physicist in a global context.
You will be able to choose from among many different elective modules as well as from many different topics for your Master’s thesis. Building on the broad range of course modules will give you the opportunity to specialise in a topic of your interest.
Within the core programme, students choose one of the following five tracks:
Physics for Energy
Physics for Fluids Engineering
Physics for Health and Life
Physics for Instrumentation
Physics for Quantum Devices and Quantum Computing.
