The Master of Science in Applied Physics in the Physical and Geological Sciences Group, Faculty of Science (FOS), is a programme that fosters pure and applied research in different areas of physics. MSc by Research in Applied Physics includes the short projects in a broad range of pure and applied research topics. The research projects must be original and should incorporate modern techniques and methods.
The programme is designed for qualified individuals, who wish to acquire advanced knowledge, as well as analytical and research skills in a discipline of Applied Physics related to industry or academia.
Candidates will perform a research project under the supervision of Applied Physics staff members. Moreover, our staff members have established research collaboration with other institutes from Europe and America and the involvement of students in such is highly encouraged.
Aims and ScopeThe MSc Programme in Applied Physics aims to make scientists with high level specialised training, in order to cover the increased needs of Industry in related aspects. Also, students wishing to continue their studies at a PhD level will be able to prepare for the conduction of PhD research on relevant topics.
The scope of the programme is to provide students the necessary specific scientific information, as well as to train them to develop their skills and analytical capabilities.
StructureStudents conduct an approved research project, with the supervision of one or more staff members. Upon completion of their research, they submit a Thesis, which normally does not exceed 60,000 words.
Assessmentincludes examination of the thesis by internal and external examiners. As stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations the examiners may subject a candidate to an oral examination or any other test they think necessary to assess the acceptability of the thesis. Periodic assessment of the progress of the candidate is carried out as stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations.
