Call for Applications for the international Masterís Degree Programme in Phisycs (Class LM-17) A.A. 2024/2025 RESERVED TO FOREIGN/INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS REQUIRING A VISA FOR ITALY

The course is managed by the Department of Physics, Informatics and Mathematics


The Master's Degree in Physics provides an up-to-date academic background in various sectors of contemporary physics. Three curricula, flexible study programmes, teachings that integrate theoretical, experimental, and computational skills, along with a research degree thesis on themes that are meeting points, provide an advanced and customised background for students' interests. The teaching activity is taught entirely in English and has a low ratio of students/professors; it uses scientists of the Department who are leaders in their respective research sectors, and foreign university professors (visiting professors). Students therefore are in direct contact with the latest research developments when they are still studying.

Programme contents

The “Theoretical and computational physics”, “Experimental nano-physics and quantum technology”, and “Bio-physics and applied physics” curricula are being offered. Programmes cover the physics of matter, both theoretical-computational and experimental, the physics of the other energies, and various application fields, from nanotechnologies to biophysics, to quantum technologies. At least a semester is dedicated to an original research project in a research group of the Department or other research centres, within professors' scientific collaborations.

Job opportunities

Master graduates in physics acquire analytic and problem-solving skills, mathematical and technological knowledge, and an in-depth understanding of the essential phenomena, which is needed for the research and development of new technologies, thus ensuring an effective access to the world of work. Our graduates work in all high-tech industrial sectors, from advanced mechanics to electronics and telecommunications, from biomedical to ceramic industries. Master graduates in physics find employment also in meteorology and environmental control, medical physics, finance sector, scientific publishing, and higher education. Many master graduates access the PhD programme, in Italy or abroad, which is a starting point of a career in scientific research, both academic and industrial.
