If you opt for the Materials Physics specialization of the Master’s programme in Applied Physics, you will take four mandatory general track courses. In addition, you will take two chair-specific courses, depending on the research group where you wish to complete your graduation assignment. In addition, the various research groups offer a number of elective courses for you to choose from.
In the four general track courses Theoretical Solid State Physics, Surfaces and Thin Layers, Nanophysics and Advanced Materials you will learn more about low-dimensional systems with typical length scales in the range of 1-100nm, solid-state physics and advanced materials, for example.
You will take different mandatory courses depending on the research group where you will be doing your graduation assignment. Each research group has a number of mandatory courses and some recommended courses. Below you will find a brief overview of the courses offered.
