About

This Physics of Data programme from the University of Padua provides new theoretical and computational tools to tackle the explosion of datasets within the physicist mindset. It combines advanced knowledge in the field of Physics with a high-level training in Data Science.

Overview

Developing fundamental methods and techniques for Big Data analysis to face the challenges that the digital revolution has brought to our society: these are the goals of the course, which trains a new generation of physicists, capable of combining advanced knowledge in physics with high-level training in the new data science. 

While physics aims at interpreting natural phenomena whose complexity requires the collection, management and analysis of large amounts of data, the need to train professionals who also know how to develop methods and techniques for such analysis is growing. 

As a "data physicist" you will have advanced training in physics, mathematics and computer and calculation techniques, you may find employment in many different contexts, such as academic institutions, research centers, digital and consulting market companies, start-ups and high-tech industries.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the Physics of Data programme from the University of Padua master tools for collecting, managing and analysing big data, and to translate their work into highly valuable information. Graduates work as professionals in research centres, internet companies, consulting companies, startups and high tech industries and public administrations.
