After having completed the Master’s programme you will, aside from having obtained a solid knowledge of physics, also have acquired relevant training in analytical methods and thought processes, as well as programming skills and use of advanced computer technology. These skills are important to be able to understand and analyse phenomena and natural processes. Furthermore, knowledge and insight into physics is the foundation for modern technology, and economists also derive their mathematical models from physics.
There are many possible career paths after having completed the Master’s programme in Physics:
- Research and development work within the private and public sector,
- administration and research administration,
- programming and development work in the computer industry,
- medical physics, as well as
- teaching and other communication oriented work are some examples.
Possible work places with a Master’s degree in Physics:
- Det Norske Veritas (DNV),
- the Norwegian Institute for Air Research,
- the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment,
- Rikshospitalet University Hospital,
- the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority,
- Inventura Tech,
- hospitals and
- radiography departments.
The Master’s programme in physics qualifies for further PhD studies in physics, and depending on programme option, also for adjacent areas such as electronics and material sciences.
