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.
