This is an advanced course in Physics awarding a M.Sc. degree based on 120 ECDS credits; this course is fully taught in English. This programme is the most obvious follow-up if you hold a B.Sc. in physics or related areas. The main objective of this course is a deep and flexible understanding of the main areas of modern physics. The course is based on individual study and on actual research work, done in close contact with researchers working on advanced topics in a wide range of areas ranging from fundamental physics to advanced aspects of applied physics.
This course gives students all skills needed to address a wide range of job opportunities:
Regardless of their specific interests and motivation, our M.Sc. graduates have a deep understanding of the main areas of modern physics, at the theoretical and experimental level, a working knowledge of the main experimental and data handling techniques and a full appreciation of the scientific method.
Following her/his own specific interests students may choose among several key areas of physics, including Astrophysics, Space Physics and Physical Cosmology, Condensed Matter, Medical Physics, Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics, Material Science and Technology, Theoretical Physics, Computational Physics.
The goal of the Master School in Physics is a strengthening in the mastery of classical and modern Physics, as well as of the scientific method, together with a solid scientific and operative preparation in the chosen specialization field. These goals require adequate skills in the handling of mathematical and computing tools and techniques, and also familiarity with modern instrumentation and advanced data analysis.
With these objectives, the Master in Physics is structured in a first part in which the basic facts learnt in the first three-year School are thoroughly investigated, especially in the subjects of Mathematics, Electromagnetism, Quantum Mechanics and its applications, and Scattering theory; and in a second part in which the studies concentrate on a field where research is done in our Physics Department.
The school activity then turns into the study of the frontier developments, both theoretical and experimental, of the chosen research domain, also with up to date experimental and data analysis techniques.
This 2-year route ends with the final test, a real research autonomously executed, original, which can be carried either in the University labs or in Research Centers or in private enterprises.
We are keen to take students who have a B. Sc. (or equivalent) degree in physics. Alternately, a degree subject related to Physics can be considered on a case by case basis.
While we do not have formal requirements for language proficiency, you must at least be able to take you admittance interview in English.
No work experience is required.
Accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (Ministero dell' istruzione, Universita' e Ricerca, MIUR).
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
