Fundamental and Applied Physics
Start: 1 September 2020
Duration: 2 years
Application deadline: 10 July 2020
The program is designed to educate students to be able to stay at the forefront of fundamental understanding, and to develop practical applications. Applied Physics covers phenomena ranging from the infinitesimally small – subatomic particles – to the unimaginably large – the universe. Somewhere between these two, there is the reality of everyday life. Applied physics is about translating a deep understanding of the fundamental laws of the physical world and finding ways to apply those laws in technical solutions.
Through basic training in mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics, the physicist develops an inclination for a quantitative approach to the understanding of physical phenomena, a strong degree of abstraction and the search for common characteristics of universal problems. The most outstanding aspect of our Master’s Program is the involvement of the students in the research laboratories or in the institute of theoretical physics.
