Director of degree programme: Professor Mika Sillanpää
Degree: Master of Science (Technology)
Extent: 120 ECTS
Description of the programme and learning outcomes
Studies in engineering physics create a basis for the technological applications of physics and open doors for different careers in industry, science, and research. A profound understanding of physics and mathematics can be employed in finding novel solutions to both present-day and future’s challenges.
Studies in Master's Programme in Engineering Physics are strongly research oriented. Almost half of the MSc graduates continue towards a doctorate. The research focus areas range from experimental and theoretical materials physics to nanophysics and nanoscience, and to novel energy solutions. The study programme differs from a more classical university physics in its proximity to concrete, practical research questions. Its connection to real-life problems is very strong.
The student’s curriculum consists of an Engineering Physics major (40–65 ECTS), an option for a minor (20–25 ECTS), elective studies (25–30 ECTS), and a Master’s thesis (30 ECTS), 120 ECTS as total.
Following the degree requirements, you have two possibilities to structure your studies.
In these two possible degree structures presented above, the extent of a major may not exceed 65 ECTS. Thus, the students will always have a choice of completely elective studies at minimum 25 ECTS.
