The Master's thesis will be supervised by an active researcher and initiates students to the frontiers of research, in the following subjects: Atomic physics, Electrons in solids, Soft matter and photonics, Theoretical interdisciplinary physics, Collective quantum phenomena and Nanosciences (Nanomaterials).
At the end of the programme, students will have learned how to apply their knowledge to do research projects and how to work independently or integrate into an interdisciplinary research team.
Physics has been the main motor of the spectacular scientific and technological developments of the 20th century and will definitely continue to play a dominant role for the promotion of science at large in this century.
The study programme in Physics offered by Universität Freiburg / Université de Fribourg provides you with more advanced courses, and starts the process of specialisation. The Master's thesis is supervised by an active researcher and initiates you to the frontiers of research. Specialised lectures may also be taken at other universities, in particular Bern. It is recommended that you follow the specialised lectures in the field of your future Master's thesis. Other lectures, at your discretion, are necessary to complete the requirements. The lectures are complemented by seminars on modern research topics and advanced laboratory work, colloquia and project in research group.
