Description

Advertisement

Duration: The minimum period of study for full-time students is three (3) academic semesters and the maximum period of study is eight (8) academic semesters.

A deep understanding of current and new physical principles comes through the creation of theoretical models and, of course, their experimental verification. The objective target is the combination of all these theories and the understanding of the physical world. The results of these efforts are the promotion of new knowledge, which can be used in order to improve the standard of living. Electronic devices, telecommunications, artificial fibers, lasers and detectors are some of the technological applications. Also, solutions to many problems such as environmental pollution, the discoveries of new energy sources, and the protection from physical catastrophes are found through progress and achievements in fundamental and applied physics.

Postgraduate physics students can be employed in regional industry or in high technology companies; they can become researchers/teachers in research centres/universities; or, they can become teachers in secondary schools.

Since the study of physics not only provides knowledge in the field but also offers a unique and efficient way of solving problems, postgraduate students in physics are usually employed in other disciplines.

The research interests of the Department focus on the following areas:

* Theoretical and Experimental Nuclear Physics
* Theoretical and Experimental High Energy Physics
* Photonic, Lasers and Optoelectronics
* Solid State Theoretical and Experimental Physics
* Theoretical and Computational Biophysics

Contents

The student must successfully complete a number of graduate courses with a minimum of 120 credit units (ECTS).
Fifty of these ECTS correspond to five mandatory core courses, whereas 10 ECTS correspond to an elective course in the area in which the student will specialise. The remaining 60 ECTS are fulfilled by the successful completion of the M.Sc. thesis.

List of Courses

PHY 625 Quantum Mechanics I

PHY 626 Quantum Mechanics II

PHY 631 Electromagnetism

PHY 641 Statistical Physics

PHY 811 Experimental Physics
Specialization Course

PHY 860 Master Thesis I

Postgraduate students in the Doctoral Programme must pass the five (5) compulsary core courses and one (1) specialization course.
After the successful completion of these six (6) postgraduate courses, the candidate must pass a comprehensive examination. Candidatesmust also take at least 40 ECTS in courses in addition to the five (5) core courses. These courses should comprise specialization courses relevant to their field, as well as at least one course outside their area of specialization. The possession of an M.Sc. degree partially or completely exempts students from the required completion of the above 90 ECTS.

Requirements

The criteria for assessment of postgraduate candidates are the following:

* Applicants must have a university degree, awarded by an accredited institution in the country where it operates, or a degree evaluated as equivalent to a university degree by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS). Individuals who will be awarded a University degree or Graduation certificate fulfilling the criteria of the application requirements by the end of the week that precedes the registration week will also be eligible to submit an application form.
* Academic background in the appropriate discipline and grades in other related degrees.
* Letters of recommendation.
* Personal interview at the discretion of each department.
* Written examination at the discretion of each department.
