Physics of Advanced Materials

Professor in charge: Mikko Alava
Extent: 65 cr
Abbreviation:  PAM
Code: SCI3057

Objectives

In the major the students concentrate on materials in the wide sense. The academic environment provides a spectrum of contacts with top-notch research into advanced materials. The students are expected to focus either on experimental or theoretical and computational physics. The major is intended both for research-oriented students and for those who are particularly interested in advanced materials.

Content and structure

Students majoring in Physics of Advanced Material face a similar structure for the major as those majoring in Engineering Physics: compulsory course content with some choice and a wide selection of additional courses.

The Physics of Advanced Materials major is comprised of 1) core major studies (40 cr); 2) an extended major (25 cr) where the student chooses either a theoretical/computational or experimental track, reflecting her/his research interests.

The student is recommended to take 40 cr of the major courses and 20 cr of others during the first year. The special assignment can also be completed during the summer between the first and second year in the programme.
