In the second year of your Master degree program you will work on a final project in one of the focal areas that, to a large extent, match the research focal areas of the department.
You can choose to carry out your project within the department (only for international students) or at another university. It is also possible to carry out the project at a company in the Netherlands or abroad. The three focal areas (Master tracks) are:
- NANO (Nanoscience & Technology):
analyzing, constructing and manipulating materials at nanometer scale;
- FLOW (Transport Physics):
fundamental aspects of transport processes in fluids and gases;
- PLASMA (Plasma Physics and Radiation Technology):
plasmas and their applications, and applications of ion beams.
The fourth and last focal area of the Applied Physics department, Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion, is classified in a separate Master program within the Applied Physics Graduate program.
