The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
Physics is the science that studies the relationships between all physical objects. The Science of Physics is the study of the very big as well as the study of the very small. Physics concerns itself with the mathematical interpretation of these worlds. Studying physics at either an undergraduate level and later at a postgraduate level will provide you with long-lasting tools to face analytical challenges in your professional life. Although a main pathway in physics is to engage in research and technology development, physicists are highly-sought after in several industries as their power to analyse and understand patterns and complex systems are unrivalled by other sciences.

The Master's program Quantum Physics for Advanced Materials Engineering is devoted to the study of new physical phenomena discovered in nanostructured materials and quantum devices created last 20-30 years in the search for components for quantum electronics. At the same time, the program addresses the basic physical principles of electronic systems and devices of quantum electronics, as well as some important manufacturing techniques and measurements of physical and chemical characteristics of quantum-sized structures and materials.
The program is designed for students trained in the number of university courses in general physics and introduction to theoretical physics for a Bachelors, which includes the courses: theoretical mechanics and the theory of elasticity, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics and statistical physics. The program does not involve a starting special training of students in the condensed matter physics, because it includes basic courses in:...

The program deepens the knowledge of basic elements of modern physics (atomic and molecular physics, solid state physics, nuclear and particle physics) and of theoretical physics (analytical mechanics, quantum mechanics, mathematical and numerical methods). It is possible to strengthen the knowledge of specific fields like biophysics, nanoscience, quantum information, condensed matter physics, nuclear and particle physics, physics of the fundamental interactions. Finally, the program provides direct experience of the laboratory techniques and computer calculation techniques and data analysis.
The graduate in Physics will know and understand the most relevant phenomena of the physical world at different scales, starting from the macroscopic world down to the atomic physics, the physics of condensed matter, nuclear and subnuclear physics. The understanding of the physical world will be based on experimental evidence and proper use of theoretical modelling and its mathematical instruments, including numerical techniques....

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything.
The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing but also modules in philosophy and modern languages....

Benefits of the programme
The program focuses on the fundamental principles behind modern-day physicist's picture of nature. Students are introduced to the course material through both classroom exploration of theoretical models of condensed matter and observation of the behaviors of condensed matter in a lab environment. The problems being studied by means of converging NBIC technologies deal with neutron and synchrotron radiation.
The program aims to provide professional expertise in the field of condensed-matter physics. It will enable graduates to handle research and engineering problems in various areas of physics, chemistry, biology, and material sciences.
Students are expected to carry out fundamental research making full use of the MEGA-Science Facilities. Accordingly, a lot of attention in the program is paid to a detailed study of the interaction of neutron and synchrotron radiation with matter.
Graduates of the program are experts on: the foundations of interaction of neutron and synchrotron radiation with matter (solid state matter, polymers, nature objects, nano- and heterostructures); as well as physics-mathematical apparatus, which describes the processes of generation, propagation and scattering of coherent radiation.
Having qualified in the program, graduates develop the necessary skills to collect, process and analyze data obtained with neutron and synchrotron stations. In addition, they acquire new methods to record and handle images, to detect different bodies and processes, and to study the fundamental properties of matter. The science degree holders are able...

Advanced materials with sizes ranging from nano to macro are at the core of many modern technologies. Therefore, it is important to understand and control the material properties from the atomic to the macroscopic scales. The "Physics and technology of advanced materials" MSc specialization focuses on understanding and manipulating the physical properties of materials to discover new features with application relevance. The deepening in the specific domain, mentioned above, is particularly important given the need for knowledge of how to obtain monocrystalline or nano-microsystems with well-defined properties and qualities and how to characterize their properties.
