Do you want to explore what nature is made of at the fundamental level? What are the elementary particles and fundamental forces that govern the Universe? Or the role of dark energy and dark matter in cosmic evolution? Can we use a many-body approach to describe light absorption in a solar cell? Are quantum phenomena responsible for DNA mutation? And how can we explain superconductivity in carbon?

The Master's degree programme in Physics is open to students with a solid background in physics who are eager to expand their knowledge and experience in a modern physics research environment. The goal of the Master of Physics is to train excellent researchers in the field of materials science, subatomic physics, isotope physics, or theoretical physics.

The programme offers the following tracks:
* Quantum Universe
* Advanced Materials
* Science, Business and Policy
