    Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Physics

    Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Physics


    Class: LM-17 – Physics

    Duration: 2 years - 120 ECTS credits


    Starting from academic year 2020/2021


    The Department of Mathematics and Physics (DMF) of the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” opens a Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Physics staring September 2020. Entirely offered in English, the MSc in Physics is strongly connected to the research activities performed at the DMF. During the 2-year Programme, the students will attend 10 modules and perform a master thesis to gain a total of 120 ECTS credits (ECTS standing for European Credit Transfer and accumulation System, which is equivalent to the Italian CFU system). The first two semesters (year 1) are devoted to acquire a solid knowledge in quantum physics, statistical mechanics, computational physics,  matter physics, nuclear and subnuclear physics (see the study plan for details). During the third and fourth semesters (year 2), the students focus upon a few specialised training modules, followed by a master thesis work about an original research subject. Students can choose among five specialisations:

    i.              Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics

    ii.             Atomic and Molecular Physics

    iii.            Physics of Complex Systems

    iv.            Environmental Physics

    v.             Aerospace Physics

    For the aims of the Programme, the MSc Teaching Board has established inter-institutional agreements with a few European universities, including the Technical University of Munich (DE), the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (PL) and the University of Lisbon (PT).

    Students have the opportunity to spend a period of study (preferably the third semester) at one of the partner universities in Europe. At the end of the Programme, the MSc graduate will have a deep and solid knowledge of modern physics, covering both theoretical end experimental aspects. They will be able to gain skills to manage complex experimental setups and become familiar with the latest technologies. Alternatively, they will learn to work with physical models, along with mathematical and numerical tools, to describe physical reality.

    For the admission, bachelor degree in physics or related field is required, along with English level B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
