In this Physics programme at University of Antwerp, you will acquire knowledge in fundamental physics, material sciences, nanosciences and computational methods. Moreover, you will gain various competences through the advanced practicals and workshops proposed within the programme, all beneficial for your future professional activities.


This Master of Science in Physics programme at University of Antwerp is built upon the following standpoints:

  • Progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology can only be made after detailed understanding of underlying fundamental nanophysics.
  • Proper training in nanophysics, preparatory for R&D work in nanotechnology, requires a period of two years.
  • Proper training in nanophysics demands access to different visions and different approaches even within same topics.

To comprise the above goals, our courses in fundamental nanophysics and its applications in material science are organised in a full, two-year master programme, in collaboration with several other scientific institutions.

Your future

All the acquired competences in the Master will contribute to the easy integration of the graduates in the academic world, the European R&D base, as well as in the private job market. A large fraction of our graduates continue their education in a PhD programme, but many of them also find careers in private companies (as scientists, engineers or managers) and teaching institutions.

The competences our programme provides are:

  • developing analytical mindset and understanding concepts used to describe matter at and below nanoscale; mastering the formalisms and methods in order to perform theoretical studies and calculations with applications from atomistic to macroscopic scale;
  • evaluating the appropriate experimental techniques to probe specific properties of matter;
  • acquiring experience in large scale facilities;
  • developing communication skills and world-wide networking in a multi-cultural environment;
  • performing independent research, using relevant scientific literature, delimiting a scientific problem, choosing appropriate methods, interpreting and evaluating the results, and  presenting the results to a large audience in correct language and in popular form (when needed).
