Progress in modern technology depends on development in materials science. This programme gives you the opportunity to become a specialist in materials physics and nano and quantum technology, making you highly competitive in this expansive field.
Advancements in modern technology are dependent on research and development in materials science. Solar cells, smartphones, quantum computers, biomedicine, and space telescopes are examples of applications using materials engineered on the nano scale. With specialist knowledge in materials physics, nano and quantum technology, you will be highly competitive in this rapidly developing field.
Theoretical and experimental courses
Research and development of new materials is based on a broad range of techniques, such as experimentally growing and controlling materials on anatomic scale and making supercomputer calculations for the prediction and analysis of new materials. This master’s programme offers theoretical and experimental courses with applications in advanced materials physics, as well as nano and quantum technology.
Mechanics, physics and optics
You will begin your studies with a solid foundation in quantum mechanics, experimental physics, computational physics, solid state physics, and optics and photonics. Later on you may specialise by selecting more courses in a particular subfield that interests you, such as experimental nanophysics, computational physics or quantum technology. In the final semester, you will take part in cutting-edge research while writing your thesis.
