    Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Physics

    Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Physics


    Class: LM-17 – Physics

    Duration: 2 years - 120 ECTS credits

    President of the degree course: Prof. Eugenio Lippiello (elected with DR n of 12/14/2021)


    The Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Physics at the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” offers the opportunity to very able graduates to deepen their knowledge of physics. The course, entirely delivered in English, is strongly connected to the research activities performed at the Department of Mathematics and Physics. For the admission, bachelor degree in physics or related field (mathematics, chemistry or engineering disciplines,..) is required, provided that students have a sufficiently strong physics and mathematics background. English level B2, in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), is also required. During the 2-year Programme students will have ample opportunity to immerse themself in different areas of physics. 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, MSc graduates will have a deep and solid knowledge of modern physics, covering both theoretical end experimental aspects. They will 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 and interdisciplinary phenomena.
