Eindhoven University of Technology runs a two-year Master of Applied Physics program comprising compulsory subjects, elective subjects, an off-campus internship, and a graduation project. Each year is worth 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
In the first year you specialize along one of the disciplinary research themes, viz. (1) Nano, Quantum and Photonics, (2) Plasmas and Beams, or (3) Fluids, Bio and Soft Matter. Free electives give you the opportunity to further deepen or broaden your knowledge and perspective, whereas an external traineeship guarantees international and/or industrial experience.
The second year is optionally covered by an extended external traineeship to continue gaining off-campus experience. For three quartiles or a full year, a graduation project along the specialization research themes emphasizes further development of independent and high-level academic skills in a professional research environment.
