The Master in Physics at UIT the Arctic University of Norway shapes the future. Wherever you look, you see physics and ways to apply physics. Mobile phones, CD players, radios, TVs and computers are all advanced technical equipment based on physical methods and principles. Satellites above us monitor what takes place on the Earth.


These observations are downloaded by satellite stations and translated into images that makes it easier to understand the situation on the Earth. Within meteorology physics is used in measuring the air above us, in order to give better weather predictions. Studies of the northern lights and the ionosphere are also important to understand the interaction between space and Earth's atmosphere. All this is physics.
