This top rated programme will expand your knowledge of physics as a whole, while giving you the opportunity to specialise in a field of your choice. You will have the opportunity to tailor your programme to suit your individual interests and personal ambitions. You will fulfil the role of junior scientist from early on in your programme, being involved in experimental research, giving presentations and contributing to scientific articles.
The themes that are covered within the programme are in perfect alignment with these five research clusters.
We strongly encourage you as a master’s student to look for challenges outside the programme. For instance, you can choose to enrol in the UT honours programme, take additional courses or pursue a double degree. The latter could imply combining Applied Physics with, for example, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Nanotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Science Education & Communication or Mechanical Engineering. By broadening your horizon this way, you can take yourself to an even higher level.
