Master's Program in Engineering Physics
The program is given jointly by the Departments of Physics and Applied Physics and aims to educate problem solvers for advanced industrial research and development, and to prepare students for PhD studies in physics and related subjects.
It starts with a broad choice of basic physics courses. Simulation, modelling and a broadening towards applied subjects as well as computer science and mathematics may also be included. Solving complex, sometimes interdisciplinary, problems is a central part of the education. This requires a profound knowledge and understanding of physics, as well as experience with analytical and computational tools. In addition, problem solving involves modelling as well as the introduction of necessary approximations.
Extra info on the optics track
One of the five tracks on the Master program in Engineering Physics is the optics track. The main info on the track is given in the links above. For the academic year 2018/2019, some extra information on the track structure is outlined. It shows how the mandatory and conditionally elective courses are connected, and which courses to choose depending on your interest. Courses connected by solid lines indicate that the more basic course is either recommended or required for the more advanced. In some cases you might, if you are prepared to work a bit harder, skip a basic course and go directly for the more advanced. Courses connected by dotted lines indicate that the basic course is helpful. You can also find a given in different periods.
For the academic year 2019/2020 there will be some changes to the optics track.
