Master of Science

Applied physicists have a different view on the world around us. Physical phenomena turn into challenges, fascinating questions to investigate and analyze. But as an applied physicist you go one step further, by applying your knowledge of these phenomena in new technological developments. For example, think of:  

  •    increasing the efficiency of solar cells  
  •    new ways to generate energy
  •    even faster data traffic

In many cases these are ambitious projects, in which working in teams with people from other disciplines is a central factor.


The Master's program in Applied Physics trains you to become Master of Science in Applied Physics (MSc). You develop a great expertise in the field of physical phenomena, new technologies and measurement methods. The extensive practical experience that you gain during your training is useful for finding a job.
