In Materials Physics you will learn experimental and theoretical methods to study, understand and design new materials. You will learn how to predict, understand and modify properties of existing materials to improve their performance in technological applications. Investigation of novel phenomena that can have large impact in future technology, such as topological insulators, 2D materials and spintronics will be the focus of your research project.
Physics at Uppsala University covers the entire length scale from subatomic strings to the whole universe, with forefront research across all sub-branches of physics – from research on elementary particles and materials, the structure of the earth and its atmosphere, to space and the properties of the universe. The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University is ranked No. 39 in the world according to the recent Shanghai ranking which makes it the highest ranked physics department in all of Scandinavia.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
New materials are required in a variety of fields, including nanoelectronics and magnetism, in energy applications and environmental science. When you specialise in Materials Physics, within our Master’s Programme in Physics, you can choose freely among many different courses for tailoring your own study plan, according to your interests and your plans for the future.
Of course, we will help you in shaping your study plan according to which field are you interested in, including for example renewable energy, magnetism or new functional materials. You can prepare yourself for continuing in research or for a professional life in the private or public sector. You will also have great opportunities to study at a foreign university during your education.
During the programme you can expect to:
- learn to predict, understand and modify properties of existing materials to improve their performance in technological applications
- create your own profile, including for example renewable energy, magnetism or new functional materials
- study abroad and integrate lectures with internships and smaller research projects
Many of these courses integrate lectures with internships and smaller research projects that enable you to learn how to use advanced modern experimental techniques to analyse materials on atomic length and time scales. The methods are based on state-of-the-art spectroscopy, microscopy and scattering techniques. The experimental work is performed both at Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala and at large-scale international facilities.
You are naturally curious about how the world works and realize that formulating a question can be just as important as finding the answer. You have a good theoretical foundation in both Physics and Mathematics and experience in using your knowledge to analyse data or create computer-based tools to solve problems. Obviously, you already know the basics of Quantum Physics.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in the field. So, if you are searching for theanswer, a Master’s degree in physics from Uppsala University might be exactly what takes you there.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Physics as the main field of study. After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Science (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is 75 credits in physics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
Application Fee: SEK 900
Tuition fee, first semester: SEK 72500
