Master's degree in physics (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • demonstrate a capacity for abstraction and analysis of problems,
  • collect, critically assess and synthesise data, measurements and solutions,
  • identify the necessary data for the formulation of new knowledge,
  • formulate new knowledge on the basis of existing theories or available data,
  • apply knowledge in practice (particularly knowledge of modern technologies),
  • make interdisciplinary connections between scientific findings,
  • undertake autonomous professional work and work in an (international) group,
  • communicate and impart technical information to the general public,

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate in-depth understanding of the physical laws of nature,
  • make connections between the basic laws of nature and observable characteristics of the world,
  • pose physical problems in a creative manner and analyse them,
  • formulate physical problems mathematically,
  • deduce the physical bases of practical problems,
  • model problems,
  • demonstrate mastery of advanced experimental skills in physics,
  • critically evaluate the results of measurements and apply these in the building or upgrading of models,
  • demonstrate understanding of the principles of operation of technological devices on the basis of basic laws,

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

  • A completed first-cycle (Bologna, undergraduate) programme in the physics field (physics programme and meteorology with geophysics programme); or
  • a completed first-cycle (Bologna) programme in another field, where prior to enrolment the candidate must complete course units essential for further study totalling 10–60 credits; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme under an old programme in the field of physics (measurement techniques programme); or
  • a completed professional higher education programme under the former programme in another field, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed course units essential for further studies, consisting of 10–60 credits.

-

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

-

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units, consisting of 60 credits per year (a total of 120 credits). Students complete the programme when they obtain a passing grade for their master's thesis defence.
