Applied Physics is all about understanding the fundamental laws of the physical world and finding ways to apply those laws through technical solutions. Applied physicists use scientific principles to create or improve practical devices and systems, and to contribute to many other fields. The physics department at UT is one of the best in the world. During this Master’s, you will learn more about the fundamentals of modern physics and their application. You will expand your knowledge of physics as a whole while having the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in a specialisation of your choice. We focus on science and engineering in areas such as Physics of Fluids, Quantum Physics, Nano Electronic Materials, Applied Nanophotonics, Soft Matter, Energy Materials & Systems and Materials Science & Engineering. You can tailor your programme to suit your individual interests and ambitions.
