About

In the Physical and Chemical Sciences - Materials Physics programme at the University of Turku you will become an expert in research and development of new materials in biomedical or electronic applications. 

Overview

Physical and Chemical Sciences - Materials Physics is one of the four specialisation tracks of the Master’s Degree Programme in Physical and Chemical Sciences from the University of Turku . The other tracks of the programme are Astronomy and Space Physics, Materials Chemistry, and Theoretical Physics. 

You will work in an active research group together with other students, post-docs and senior researchers on solving problems in e.g. energy efficiency and drug delivery. In addition to theoretical basis of materials physics, you will also learn to use the state-of-the-art research equipment with hands on courses. 

Upon graduation, you will be able to use the diverse set of skills acquired as part of this track, including experimental, theoretical and numerical techniques to produce and analyse new physical projects.

Job Options

The prospects for employment at relatively senior levels is excellent for those trained in the physical and chemical sciences. Thanks to the broad scope of the programme, the skills and knowledge developed as part of this education at the University of Turku provide many employment opportunities in different areas.

Our recent MSc’s work e.g. as quality managers in large companies, R&D engineers in biotech and materials companies, security engineers at nuclear power plants.

Programme Structure

Recent examples of thesis titles in materials physics have been:
  • Self-organised artificial pinning structure in small-scale YBCO films grown on an advanced IBAD-MgO based template
  • Fabrication and characterisation of resistive memories based on Pr6Ca0.4MnO3
  • Photoluminescence of thermally carbonized and wet-oxidized porous silicon
  • Physical and chemical characterisation methods for metal powders used for additive manufacturing process
  • Surface properties of GaN- and AlGaN-semiconductors and their modification
  • Geometric corrections in computer tomography images
  • Mass spectroscopy investigation of fragmentation of uridine and cytidine molecules
