About this program

Master's in Astrophysics, Elementary Particles and Computational Physics

This master program is dedicated to the study of both General Relativity, Quantum Field
Theory and in addition the study of advanced computational methods. The courses studied at this program offer the opportunity for combining both analytical and computational skills of the students and help them to develop research careers in many areas of physics and closed related domains.

Student advantages

The students that attend the program could improve their knowledge of theoretical physics and computational physics and work further in the research activity. They could continue with a PhD in various fields of physics from which we enumerate: quantum field theory, general relativity, statistical physics, solid state physics, computational physics and mathematical physics. Also the students will benefit from the expertise of various research groups that will offer them the opportunity to start research activities, scientific conferences and participate to research projects. This will help the students to make the first steps towards a career in physics. The programme also offer the opportunity to visit other universities from abroad and to study there one semester or one year. Developing both analytical and computational skills the students could also work in other fields like IT industry, or side by side with the engineers in projects that aims to develop new products and techniques needs in various industries.

Career impact

This master program offers the necessary theoretical knowledge for working in theoretical
physics and any areas of physics. The programme offers a large flexibility in what regards the areas in which the students could find a job beginning with physics, IT industry, engineering. It offers the skills needed for working in team and to have a critical thinking.

Admission requirements

We are looking for students with B.Sc. degree in physics or related to physics (including B.Sc. in mathematics, engineering or medicine) with significant content in modern physics, including quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and nuclear physics. You may also be considered for the course if you have other professional qualifications or experience with equivalent status.
