Master's Degree in Physics

A.A. 2023/24

The Master’s Degree Programme in Physics (LM-17 class) has a two-year duration, in which students acquire 120 ECTS. Admission is not restricted and takes place by means of an assessment of curricular requisites and personal skills.
The Master’s Degree Programme in Physics aims to provide students not only with a basic knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics and of physics of matter, shared with all curricula, but also with a full knowledge of basic mathematics, computer science and scientific computation, acquired in Bachelor’s Degrees.
The Master’s Degree Programme is divided in four curricula. The curriculum in Fundamental interactions:Theory and Experiment, taught in English, aims to build great mastery in Subnuclear physics, by focusing especially on its experimental aspects; from academic year 2021/22 is connected to the Erasmus Mundus Master Lascala
The curriculum Condensed Matter Physics:Theory and Experiment, taught in English, in aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of theoretical and experimental aspects of condensed matter; from academic year 2022/23 is connected to the Erasmus Mundus Master Quarmen.
The curriculum in Biosystems focuses on biophysics, both from a computational and an experimental viewpoint. The Theoretical-general curriculum enables students to investigate theoretical physics issues in the field of gravitation, elementary particles, statistical mechanics and complex systems. Skills are acquired thanks to attendance to the core courses of the various curricula (that is not mandatory though recommended) and are assessed in exams, usually oral.

Thanks to this degree programme, masters graduates can be admitted to PhD schools, 2nd level professional masters and can hold technical and managerial duties in Civil Service and in the private sector.
In particular, masters graduates may become laboratory technicians, scientific programmers, data analysts, software developers for scientific and industrial applications, commercial technicians for customer support (for example, in case of instrumentation manufacturers). By taking advantage of their cross-curricular mathematical and technical skills, masters graduates may successfully cooperate with other professionals such as engineers, managers and IT specialists.
