Course content

With a master programme in Physics and Technology you will acquire specialist skills in a broad area, primarily linked to the design and fabrication of nanostructured functional materials as well as the characteristics of light and its interaction with atoms, molecules and matter. Applications that exploit these aspects are the primary focus of this academic profile.

First semester

In the first semester of the master program you will work theoretically and experimentally with sensor technology, stochastic signal processing, mechanical vibrations and an elective course. This will provide you with a broad foundation which qualifies for many different jobs.

Second and third semester

The next two semesters you will specialise further within optics, molecule physics, nanophysics, nanotechnology and numerical methods. You have the option to initiate your master thesis on the 3rd semester with 10 ECTS continuing with 30 ECTS on the 4th semester

Fourth semester

The last semester is dedicated to the master thesis. You will choose the subject yourself. The master thesis will typically be carried out in one of the research groups and/or in cooperation with an industrial company.
