Global trends are shaping our world, and while these forces present both exciting opportunities and unparalleled challenges, the demand for future scientific solutions and rapid technological innovation remains unchanged.
This programme offers a forward-thinking curriculum in theoretical, computational and experimental physics. Particular emphasis is placed on astronomy, biological physics, high-energy physics and material science. The programme also fosters creative thinking, critical evaluation and problem-solving/engineering skills grounded in the fundamental principles of physics.
This programme will prepare you for a professional career in the private or public sector, both nationally and internationally. As a student you will acquire a broad insight into the areas of physics that will form the basis for the advanced technologies of today and tomorrow. You will be able to identify and explain general aspects of physics that are integral to applications in engineering and natural sciences. Furthermore, you will be able to identify relevant experimental and theoretical methods and apply these to problem solving across a wide range of disciplines or multi-disciplinary fields.
The programme is intended for students with a strong interest in theoretical, computational, and/or experimental aspects of physics and astronomy. In short, theory provides models and concepts that can explain and predict experimental observations. The use of computers allows for numerical computation of the fundamental laws of physics and use of advanced techniques, e.g. machine learning.
Finally, the use of advanced instrumentation, both in-house and at large facilities e.g Onsala Space Observatory, will provide the students with in-depth knowledge of material and biological systems, and of distant stars and galaxies. In the core courses of the programme, the focus lies in providing the students with a solid understanding of the fundamental principles of physics, thereby preparing them for a future driven by knowledge and technology. The students are recommended to choose two out of five different specializations, namely astronomy, biological physics, computational physics, high-energy physics or material science.
Examples of research activities include the study of string theory, computational methods to understand the atomic and sub-atomic scale, energy-related materials, such as lithium batteries, and materials for specific applications, such as nanoplasmonics, interfaces between biological systems and inorganic structures, and advanced experiments, in which state-of-the-art instruments contribute to an understanding of both the microscopic world and astrophysical phenomena.
