Learning outcomes

By having a Master of Science in Physics you are participating in a project on the frontier of international research. By being integrated in a specialized research group, you will acquire both research experience, knowledge and skills, in addition to obtaining a professional network.

After having completed a Master's degree in Physics, you have obtained:


You have insights in physics at an advanced level:

  • You have thorough knowledge in physical theories, models and methods within your programme option.
  • You have broad knowledge of relevant experimental and numerical Methods.
  • You have broad knowledge regarding advanced analytical models and methods in physics.

You have developed professional intuition and comprehensive understanding which makes it possible to present and discuss physics problems, results and uncertainties.


You can develop and apply advanced analytical, numerical and experimental methods used in physics:

  • You can apply already acquired methods to new problems.
  • You can execute preliminary simulations and experiments in order to approach new phenomenons/problems.
  • You can apply the relevant analytical, numerical and experimental methods to examine the problem/hypothesis:
  • You can (one or several):
    • develop and utilize measurement devices and execute advanced experiments
    • develop and apply advanced analytical models
    • implement numerical methods and use existing programs                 

You can structure and present scientific data that is being produced.

General competence

You develop professional competence through work with physics:

  • You develop professional maturity and can work independently.
  • You can communicate topics of physics to peers, experts from other disciplines and the general public.
  • You can plan and manage a research project.
  • You are familiar with principles for commercial activity and innovation.

You can reflect on and develop learning strategies for lifelong learning.        

You have values and attitudes that create the basis for sound development and use of the subject:

  • You have an understanding of both pure and applied research.
  • You are familiar with the scientific requirements of verifiability and sharing of knowledge.
  • You understand ethical aspects of your role as a professional and can reflect ethically on the the methods and their applications.
  • You can assess the aspects of health, environment and safety for your own work.
