A two-year degree comprising 120 ECTS credits, the PLASMA program follows the general structure of the MSc Applied Physics. This includes a core course in computational and mathematical physics, mandatory specialization courses, free and track electives, an internship and a final project.
All students in the PLASMA program must take two 5-credit specialization courses. These are:
- Introduction to plasma physics
- Advanced optics
The track electives for the PLASMA program are:
- Advanced electrodynamics
- Gas discharges
- Solar cells
- Accelerators and beams
- Ultracold quantum physics
- Advanced plasma physics
- Plasma processing science and technology
- Optical diagnostics: techniques and applications
- Fusion on the back of an envelope
- Magnetic confinement and MHD of fusion plasmas
- Materials in fusion reactor and its plasma wall interaction
- Heating and diagnosing fusion plasmas
