In recent history, no other area of science has shaped and influenced the development of technology as much as research in the area of physics. The Master's degree program in Engineering Physics was originally conceived as a Bachelor/Masters program of study and demands skills of precision, logical thinking, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Description of Biophysics


Program objectives include honing skills to convey independent problem solving by applying methods developed in the areas of physics, biophysics, and nanoscience, be it in the substructures and applied research of the economy and business, or as an independent business owner. The program enables engineering physicists to work in many diverse areas, in particular within interdisciplinary teams. To ensure the high degree of education, participants not only have a solid general education, including an emphasis on mastering experimental, theoretical and numerical problems, but participants also - especially during the Bachelor's degree program will also be capable of identifying and solving existing problems in research and/or industrial development. The Master's degree program has been designed as an extension of the material covered in Bachelor program and is an advanced, in-depth study of Engineering Physics.

Due to the diversity and range of the demanding program curriculum, graduates can pursue engineering careers ranging from jobs at industrial companies to basic research, as R&D technicians at large industries as well as other areas where the capacity and capability to address and solve problems are in demand. In the public sector, graduates can pursue careers in environmental protection, process engineering and testing, and at hospitals in fields such as medical engineering. Business consulting and software design companies, as well as banks, are also hiring an increasing number of physicists.
