Master's Programme in Technical Physics

Physics is an essential scientific discipline, which is at the heart of fundamental innovation in high impact research dealing with energy, environmental and health issues, communication, and information technology.

In the Master's Programme in Technical Physics, you will receive an advanced training in physics specially tailored for applied, industrial and medical research.

The programme focuses on properties of condensed matter, including semiconductors, superconductors, functional magnetic materials, and nanostructures which are vital for technological applications in today's world.

The programme offers first-year students three internship places at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, where physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Duration of internship is three months.
