Master's programme in Applied Physics is aimed for those who are interested in innovative engineering in design and application companies. Programme provides interdisciplinary education covering engineering, physics, and math in an effort to bridge the gap between theoretical science and practical engineering. Studies cover a wide spectrum of topics: nanotechnology, quantum topics, solar cells, experimental solid state physics and econophysics. Additionally it is possible to opt for more theoretical projects, such as computer simulation of physical systems, modeling of turbulence and complex systems (e.g. biological or social networks).
The graduates of the programme have skills applicable in a broad sphere, such as engineers or project managers in high-tech startup companies or well-established companies in the field of energy, nanotechnology, data mining, measuring laboratories etc.
2-year master's programme provides thorough knowledge and skills in the areas of laboratory and technological measurements, testing and chemical analysis methods, quality systems, metrology and related economic and legal aspects. Studies are carried out in the “Physicum” and “Chemicum” buildings in Tartu – among the top research and education facilities in Northern Europe.
