Mission and goals

The main educational objective of this Master of Science programme is to prepare an engineer able to “produce” innovation both in the industrial environment as well as in basic research and which is highly competitive in the global market, with particular reference to the physical and optical technology, nanotechnology and photonic sectors. The physical engineer can approach all sectors in which advanced technological systems are developed: lasers, photonics, materials technology, biomedical optics, etc.

The course has three possible finalizations:
- Nano-optics and Photonics
- Nano and Physical Technologies
- Semiconductor nanotechnologies

See the website http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/educational-offer/laurea-magistrale-equivalent-to-master-of-science-programmes/engineering-physics/

Career opportunities

The graduate in Engineering Physics can approach all those sectors in which advanced technological systems are developed, such as lasers and their applications, photonics, vacuum applications, materials technology and biomedical optics.
The physical engineer can therefore find employment in companies working in the fields of materials engineering and optical technologies; companies which use innovative systems and technologies; public and private research centres; companies operating in the physical, optical and photonic technologies and diagnostics market.

The Material Physics and Nanotechnology master's programme focuses on the physics of new materials. The importance of advanced materials in current technology is best exemplified by the highly purified semiconductor crystals in use today, which are the foundation of the electronic age. Future applications in electronics and photonics will include nanoscaled physics, molecular electronics and non-linear optics.

The Materials Physics and Nanotechnology master's programme covers a wide range of materials used in for example semiconductor technology, optoelectronics and biotechnical applications. Students also study materials used in chemical sensors and biosensors, as well as materials' mechanical applications such as hardness and elasticity.

In the first semester students take mandatory courses such as Nanotechnology, Quantum Mechanics, Surface Physics and Physics of Condensed Matter, in order to get the knowledge necessary to understand advanced materials research.

The second and third semesters consist mainly of elective courses, and the fourth and final semester is devoted to a degree project in the area of material- and nanophysics.

The programme is supported by a number of internationally known research divisions, and is directed towards those who wish to pursue a university or industry career in materials-related research and development.
