Eindhoven University of Technology runs a two-year Master of Applied Physics program comprising compulsory subjects, elective subjects, an internship, and a graduation project. Each year is worth 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
Subject specialization and your graduation project give you an opportunity to deepen your knowledge.
At the end of your first year you gain experience of work in the field with a three-month internship at a company at home or abroad or at a foreign university.
The second year is devoted to your graduation project which you can opt to do within the department or at a company in the Netherlands or outside.
