The Master Programme in Physics - Energy Physics from Uppsala University studies energy conversion processes on the basis of their physics, like fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and nuclear physics.

Overview

The Master Programme in Physics - Energy Physics from Uppsala University covers the entire length scale from subatomic strings to the whole universe, with forefront research across all sub-branches of physics - from research on elementary particles and materials, the structure of the earth and its atmosphere, to space and the properties of the universe.

Today's increasing demand of energy sources with low-carbon dioxide emissions requires new developments concerning exploitation of these sources as well as energy conversion and storage. Engineering progress in these fields depends on profound knowledge of the underlying physics and by studying this you can make important contributions to our future.

Career

The employment and career opportunities are good for graduates of this specialisation, both in academia, the public and the private sector. As far as academia is concerned, you will be well prepared to pursue PhD studies, the next step on the career ladder in science.Outside of academia, the number of players in the international energy market is increasing, leading to a high demand on qualified personnel within industry and authorities. Physicists are well prepared for these challenges, since they combine the mathematical skills with programming competences and the ability to capture complex situations in quantitative models.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Introductory Course for the Master Programme in Physics
  • Energy Physics
  • Electromagnetic Field Theory
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Physics Nobel Prizes
  • Scientific Programming in Python with Applications in Physics
