Description of the program:

In the Physics MSc course, we offer comprehensive knowledge. Those skills and subject groups such as Modern Physics, Optics, and Laser Physics, Physics of Quantum Systems, Atomic and Molecular Physics encompass the science of the main areas of Physics based on the bachelor’s level of Physics. Practical courses and seminars provide students with hands-on skills.

The seminars and practical courses outnumber the number of lectures in the curriculum. This is a good reflection of our preference for learning methods based upon active student participation. We encourage students' activity with homework, self-project tasks, and we support cooperative learning methods. The subjects of Quantum Systems and Laser Physics are closely related to the important research areas of the Institute of Physics.

Courses create a foundation for writing theses related to Quantum-Optics, Quantum Informatics, Laser Physics, and Nonlinear Optics and Terahertz Physics subjects and for student research work. Furthermore, students are prepared to enter a doctoral program. A variety of elective and optional courses allow students to deepen their knowledge in subjects that correspond to their individual interests.

Admission requirements:

  • Obtained Physics BSc degree;
  • High motivation and interest in Optical and laser Physics;
  • Demonstrated evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency. Certified B2 intermediate English knowledge
