About the course


The main educational objective of this Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme is to prepare professionals with a sound expertise in science and an engineering attitude. A Physical Engineer is able to “produce” innovation both in the industrial environment as well as in basic research. He is highly competitive in the global market, with particular reference to the sectors where solid-state physics, optics, photonics and nanotechnologies are developed and routinely employed. More specifically, the Physical Engineer can approach all the industries and research labs based on advanced technologies, which may include material science, lasers, photonics devices, biomedical optics, etc. The programme has three possible finalizations: Nano-optics and Photonics; Nano and Physical Technologies; Semiconductor nanotechnologies.
