Physics is the basis of many scientific and engineering disciplines, such as the new technologies of communication and aerospace, bio-medicine and life sciences. Physics seeks to understand the complex physical and environmental systems in which we live and with his discoveries addresses the future of technology. The progress of research and technology requires graduates able to tackle and solve new problems. If you have a curious mind, if you're always wondering why things happen, if you like solving problems then physics is for you! Physics never gives you all the answers, but it will teach you to always make the right questions, to go to the root of the problems and to make non-obvious connections.

Course content

In the first two years of the Bachelor's Degree the students learn the fundamentals of Classical and Modern Physics through lectures, numerical exercises and laboratory sessions, developing the necessary mathematical and computer science background, essential for a strong interdisciplinary training. The third year the student defines a personal study plan by choosing some topics in the fields of Condensed Matter Physics, Nuclear Physics, Computational and Applied Physics. The three-year course ends with an internship either within an university research group or in an external enterprise in the science and technology area developing a small project. Students also have the opportunity to spend a study period abroad through projects funded by the European Community (ERASMUS) or by national and international research organizations.

Career options

The study of physics helps to develop a logical / mathematical mind, the ability to solve complex problems, crucial in all areas of work innovative, computer and laboratory skills. More than half of the Physics graduates work in high-tech industries, mainly in research laboratories and in R&D sectors of enterprises. Some apply "physical ideas" to engineering problems in the field of semiconductors, telecommunications and information technology. Others in medicine, in astronomy, in the world of finance and education. Most students continue to graduate studies, at a MSc level first and at the Doctorate level later on, which are required to have access to the world of research, in universities or research institutions.
