About

The world from a different perspective

Applied physicists have a different view on the world around us. Physical phenomena turn into challenges, fascinating questions to investigate and analyze. But as an applied physicist you go one step further, by applying your knowledge of these phenomena in new technological developments. In many cases these are ambitious projects, in which working in teams with people from other disciplines is a central factor.

The Applied Physics Master is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Graduated and then?

After completing the special Master’s track in Nano-Engineering you will possess the knowledge and skills to enable you to construct and manipulate (bio-)materials on a nanometer scale. There is constant demand from industry and research institutes for graduates who can work at the boundaries between physics, chemistry and biology. 

Graduates can find employment in research and development laboratories in industry, for example at Philips, ASML, DSM, and Océ, or at research institutes such as TNO. You could also take up a position that makes use of your organizational and leadership qualities.
