Course Description

Course Profile

The subject matter of the program is closely tied to Physics of New Materials which currently have been applied or have its potential application in energy generation, conversion, storage and saving.

Preliminary requirements (candidate’s qualifications):

Undergraduate degree in science, natural sciences or technology. English language skills are required.

Selected study areas

Classes offered are strictly connected to Physics (for instance, solid-state physics, thermodynamics, magnetism) but also combined Physics and Chemistry (for instance: photovoltaics, solar energy, soft matter, crystallography), Physics and Biology (for instance: artificial photosynthesis, bionanostructures) and Physics and Nanomaterial Engineering (for instance: conducting nanostructures, one- and two-dimensional materials).

Students familiarize themselves not only with theories but also with experimental methods of materials research.

Additionally, they participate in specialized courses exploring the advanced modern material characterization techniques (for instance: electron and atomic force microscopy, optical spectroscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, time-resolved laser spectroscopy, neutron scattering), material fabrication (for instance, lithography, thin film deposition, chemical methods) and theoretical computation or computer simulation methods applied in materials physics.

Work opportunities

The goal of this program is to equip students with the technical expertise necessary for an academic career (postgraduate degree studies) or a career in private sector corporations that strictly rely on detailed knowledge of scientific research (for instance, companies involved in research, producing or servicing advanced measuring tools and companies interacting with both science and the industry).
