The Master Degree Course in Physics provides students with an educational path along the main research areas of the Department, namely Physics of Fundamental Interactions, Statistical Physics, Physics of Condensed Matter and Biophysics. The Course covers both the theoretical cornerstones in these fields and the most advanced experimental and ICT-assisted techniques, offering a deep overview of advanced methods and tools at the forefront of important breakthroughs in technology. The Course also allows for synergy between Physics and other disciplines such as ICT and Informatics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, and sciences connected with Food, Health, and Well-Being.
In the educational path for this Degree Course, students can choose nine subjects out of eleven. This allows for significant flexibility of educational pathways towards the students’ cultural needs, and it encourages a deep knowledge of advanced research themes, balancing theory and experimental techniques. Students acquire their first training in scientific research by developing an original Dissertation, through which they practice in advanced techniques for experimental measurements and they apply theoretical and calculation methods. For their final Dissertation, students can also follow a Traineeships in companies, based on University agreements.
The skills and knowledge acquired in the Master Degree Course in Physics Course are adequate to access the Ph.D. Courses in Physics, both in Italy and abroad, as well as similar Ph.D. courses such as Materials Science, Mathematics, ICT and Informatics.
