Specialisation in Physics and Mathematics
Studies cover topics required for engineers working in science based industry: scientific computing, mathematical modelling, mechanics of continua, fluid dynamics, quantum mechanics. One can choose between a wide range of elective courses covering both theoretical and practical areas, e.g. applied mathematics, computer simulations, experimental solid state physics, turbulence, particle physics, photoelasticity etc.
Specialisation in Oceanography and Meteorology
The specialty of physical oceanography and atmospheric physics aims to give a fundamental and broad understanding of the physical processes in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and of the driving forces of Earth’s climate, in general. The students are familiarized with the modern methods and tools of environmental sciences, such as monitoring equipment and networks, remote sensing and numerical modelling. In addition, the students have an opportunity of studying complementing disciplines of environmental biology and chemistry, preparing them thereby for an interdisciplinary research. The courses in the curriculum help students to develop professional skills to counter environmental challenges across the world (climate change, severe weather, eutrophication, ocean acidification, coastal erosion).
Why the Applied Physics programme at TalTech ?
Future career options
Programme graduates are distinguished by their versatility – the master programme provides a systematic knowledge of natural sciences creating thereby a broad and solid basis for lifelong learning. They can work in different research and development institutions, companies and services whose main activities are related to physics, mathematics, oceanography and/or meteorology or continue the studies in PhD level.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
Minimum required score (Grade B2):
C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
