This Physics programme at Chalmers University of Technology offers a forward-thinking curriculum in physics. Particular emphasis is placed on theoretical, computational, material and biotechnical physics together with astronomy. The programme fosters creative thinking, critical evaluation and problem-solving/engineering skills grounded in the fundamental principles of physics.


Global megatrends are shaping our world, and while these forces present both exciting opportunities and unparalleled risk, the demand for future scientific solutions and rapid technological innovation remains unchanged. 

This Physics programme at Chalmers University of Technology will prepare you for a professional career in industry, society or academia both at a national and international level. As a student you will get a broad insight into the areas of physics that will form the basis for the advanced technologies of today and tomorrow. You will be able to identify and explain general aspects of physics that are integral to applications in engineering and natural sciences. Furthermore, you will be able to identify relevant experimental and theoretical methods and apply these to problem solving across a wide range of disciplines or multi-disciplinary fields.

Career opportunities

Our graduates’ expertise in problem-solving and in advanced experimental or theoretical techniques is highly valued in industry, society, or academia. In addition, the resulting training renders the programme graduates less sensitive to e.g. fluctuations within a particular industrial sector. The programme is an excellent preparation for industrial research, consulting, teaching and research organizations, but also for an academic career.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Learning from Data
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Computational Physics
  • Modern Astrophysics
  • Spectroscopy
  • Statistical Physics
  • Symmetry


The programme is intended for students with a strong interest in theoretical, computational, and/or experimental aspects of physics and astronomy.
