Students at the Master of Science in Engineering Physics at Ghent University have a solid physical know how and the necessary skills to play a leading role in groundbreaking physics research.


Key facts

Ghent University is the only university in Flanders to offer a Master of Science in Engineering Physics. At the same time they have the engineering skills that make them wanted as innovators and developers in industry, research institutes, and universities. The engineering component of the master’s programme develops skills such as analysis, design and optimisation of existing and new systems, products, machines, and materials. This involves approximating physical reality by system descriptions ranging from simple rules of thumb to expert systems. The physical component follows a reductionist approach where experiment and mathematical modelling aim at understanding and reducing physics to its basics, and deriving its governing equations. Despite the more philosophical approach, a rigorous attitude remains essential and all physical theory has to withstand experimental validation.

Labour Market

The Master of Science in Engineering Physics trains students to tackle engineering challenges with a broad skillset in physics. The broad scope of the Master and its eight advanced elective courses assure that its alumni are ready to do innovate work in a broad range of companies and research centers in all areas where physics is required or essential.
