About this program

Master's in Physics and Technology of Advanced Materials

Advanced materials with sizes ranging from nano to macro are in the core of many modern technologies. Therefore, it is important to understand and control the material properties from the atomic to the macroscopic scales. The „Physics and technology of advanced materials” MSc specialization focuses on understanding and manipulating the physical properties of materials to discover new features with application relevance. The deepening in the specific domain, mentioned above, is particularly important given the need for knowledge of how to obtain monocrystalline or nano-microsystems with well defined properties and qualities and how to characterize their properties.

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.
