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 graduating you should have attained broad and solid knowledge, skills and general knowledge. This comprises:
You should have attained insight into physics at an advanced level, which means that after graduating you should have:
- solid knowledge of physical theories, models and methods within your field.
- broad knowledge of relevant experimental and computational methods.
- broad knowledge of advanced analytical models and methods in physics.
- an academic intuition and comprehensive understanding allowing you to present and discuss physical concepts, results and uncertainties.
After graduating you should be able to develop and apply/use advanced analytical computational and experimental methods used in physics. This comprises that you can:
- apply existing methods on new problems.
- carry out preliminary computational simulations and experiments to describe new phenomena/concepts.
- apply the relevant analytical, computational and experimental methods to study the concept or hypothesis you are working on.
- structure and depict scientific data.
- one or more of the following:
- develop and use measuring tools and carry out advanced experiments.
- develop and apply analytical models.
- implement computational methods and use existing software.
Through your work on your project and the theoretical curriculum you will develop a professional competence. This means that after graduating you should or can:
- have developed professional maturity and can work independently.
- be able to communicate topics of physics to peers, experts from other disciplines and the general public.
- plan and manage a research project.
- be familiar with principles for commercial activity and innovation.
- be able to reflect over and develop learning strategies.
After graduating you will have attained values and attitudes that give you the foundation/basis to develop and use your skills and knowledge in a responsible manner. This means that after graduating as a master of physics you should:
- understand the value of pure/basic/fundamental research and applied research.
- know about scientific demands to reproducibility and sharing of knowledge.
- understand ethical aspects of your role as a professional, of the field of physics and its applications.
- know how to assess the health, environment and safety aspects of your work.
