Master by Research in Engineering Physics, 120 Credits

Save favourite

The Master by Research Programme in Engineering Physics targets students who are highly motivated to develop skills and knowledge for future career in academic or industrial research and development. This is also an excellent preparation for future doctoral studies. During the education the student works on a specific research question in collaboration with researchers at Mid Sweden University, as well as takes courses related to the research question.

The programme contains a number of advanced level courses, but is dominated by your individual project that after two years will lead up to your Master thesis.

You will be a member of the physics research groups at FSCN (Fiber and Science Network) at Mid Sweden University, who carries out research in the field of nanomaterials and processes. You will be appointed an individual supervisor who will guide you through the work. Together with researchers, you take part in a research project and work both independently and together with others. The projects are typically in the field of materials physics and may include areas lika energy harvesting, energy storage, nanotechnology, thin film technology, etc.

Entry requirements
