The Physical Engineering programme offered at University of Liège provides a solid training in applied physics. It combines the basic study of physical phenomena and their practical use in the field of engineering. The common core classes are concerned with physical properties and processes on different scales, from the microscopic world of electronics and nanosystems, to the macroscopic scales of continuum mechanics. This programme allows students to familiarise themselves with advanced methods in theory, digital simulation and experimental methods.
With this multidisciplinary approach, students learn how to solve problems in very different domains (physical chemistry, mechanics and electricity), as well as so-called “multiphysics” problems, meaning those characterised by a complex interaction between various physical mechanisms.
The specialised Master’s programme includes three concentrations:
By the end of the course, the student will have acquired:
This multidisciplinary programme enables students to prepare for an extensive range of professional activities: from cutting edge research in a university or in industry, to the design and improvements of industrial products and processes. Most of our former graduates are working on high technology projects, as project leaders in multidisciplinary groups or as engineers highly specialised in simulation or prototype development. Career opportunities exist in many domains, like for example materials science, instrumentation and sensors, microelectronics, solid and fluid mechanics, heat transfers, physical chemistry, multiphysics modelling and energy technologies.
A large number of research and development projects require engineers who understand different physical phenomena and who are able to develop technologies in new directions. An engineering physicist typically works in a multidisciplinary environment, in a team made up of specialists in very different fields, on high technology projects.
