Physics shapes the future. Wherever you look, you see physics and ways to apply physics. Mobile phones, LED lights, radios, TVs and computers are all advanced technical equipment based on physical methods and principles. Satellites above us monitor what takes place on the Earth, including environmental pollution. These observations are downloaded by satellite stations and translated into images that makes it easier to understand the situation on the Earth. Within meteorology physics is used in measuring the air above us, in order to give better weather predictions. Studies of the northern lights and the ionosphere are also important to understand the interaction between space and Earth’s atmosphere. All this is physics.
The Master’s degree programme in physics offers four different disciplines to choose between:
- Earth Observation
- Electrical Engineering
- Energy and Climate
- Space Physics

- has a solid basis in natural sciences in general, and in particular in physics
- has advanced knowledge of theory and methods in one of the offered disciplines of physics
- has thorough knowledge about mathematical and statistical methods for analysis of physical problems
- can apply knowledge on new areas of research in one of the offered disciplines of physics
- has good knowledge of scientific method and knows how to conduct a research experiment
- can analyse and assess scientific literature and research in the field of physics
Skills – The candidate:
- can use scientific measurement equipment and carry out advanced experiments
- can evaluate and analyse measurement data in a critical manner
- can assess sensors and measurement devices and evaluate and quantify their error sources
- can use programming tools and advanced software for solving physical problems numerically
- can work independently with problem solving following scientific method
- can evaluate and analyse published theories, methods and experiments in the physics literature
- can carry out an independent, limited research or development project under supervision in physics or related areas
Competences – The candidate:
- displays good communication skills, oral and written, in the presentation of scientific work for both the general public and for the specialists in the field
- can analyse academic, professional and research ethical problems in the field of physics
- displays good working habits and follows the code of ethics in scientific work
- is able to continue a career within research, teaching, production, development and technical professions in the society

- can contribute to new thinking and innovation processes in the field of physics
Admission to the Master’s programme in physics requires a Bachelor’s degree in physics, or another degree following a programme of study of not less than three years’ duration, or similar education approved in accordance with the Norwegian Universities Act section 3-4.
In addition, specialisation in physics worth the equivalent of not less than 80 ECTS credits is required. Normally, an average mark of C or better is required in the Bachelor’s degree or similar basis of admission.
Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent issued in Europe, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand: An average grade C as a minimum requirement
Students are expected to have skills equivalent to the prerequisites the courses in the study program build upon.
Applicants from Norway or Nordic countries:
The application deadline for Norwegian and other Nordic applicants is
- 15 April for admission to the autumn semester
- 1 November for admission to the spring semester.
Applicants from outside the Nordic countries:
The application deadline for International applicants
- 1 December for admission to the autumn semester.
