Course description

The primary objectives of Physics are to deeply understand the universe at its most fundamental levels and to apply this knowledge to complex systems, from subatomic particles to the vastness of the cosmos. Physics serves as the foundation for all natural sciences and is crucial for modern technological advancements. Our Master's program in Physics embodies these goals, equipping graduates for careers in university-level research and teaching, as well as research roles in industrial laboratories. Over the two-year program, students will expand their knowledge of general physics and undertake their first independent research projects. The curriculum includes a variety of study subjects designed to broaden and deepen students' understanding. By the end of the program, graduates will be well-prepared to contribute to the field of Physics, whether in academia or industry.
