The regular programme leading to a master’s degree in engineering physics starts with a three year bachelor and is completed by a two year master. Several intakes from other bachelors or masters, both domestic and foreign, are available. The two year master’s programme itself has a limited number of obligatory courses developing a strong basis in the major fields of engineering physics. Through a wide range of optional courses the student can choose an advanced education in the basic concepts of physics; simulation and modelling; photonics; nanoscale sciences; nuclear physics and technology; electronics; materials; or bio-medical physics. A research oriented master’s dissertation completes the programme.
The Master of Science in Engineering Physics trains future engineers for the greater part for research and development careers. The broad physical scope of the Master and its eight focus clusters assures that its alumni are ready to innovate in a broad range of companies and research centers in all areas where physics is required or essential. Engineering Physics delivers engineers with expertise and an inquiring attitude that allows them to excel in multidisciplinary research as well. Graduates find their way to companies working in photonics; nanoscale sciences; nuclear physics and technology; electronics; materials; or bio-medical physics. Some Engineering Physics alumni work in consultancy or have jobs at government institutes. After a few years they can be found in management functions or as leading researchers and professors.
