Objectives and learning outcomes

This major offers capabilities to work in a very broad range of challenges. The main goal is to give sufficient theoretical skills in physics, electromagnetic radiation, modelling, optics and in many materials-related topics. The major covers the basic theoretical courses required to master the general physical phenomena that are relevant ranging from nanosciences even to plasma and space physics.  The curriculum of this major can be personalized according to student’s particular field of needs and interests in the physical sciences.

The student is expected to gain such a good knowledge in natural sciences that it makes it possible to understand the basic physical and natural processes behind electronics, modern communication technologies and in nanosciences. This major gives excellent knowhow in materials science that is needed everywhere in industry.  This major gives also an excellent starting point for doctoral studies by offering a deeper understanding of theory and applications. Gained mathematical and modelling skills are also seen important in many leadership positions.
