The Physics for Technology program from National University of Singapore aims to equip high-technology R&D professionals and fresh graduates with current knowledge and skills in scientific innovations and technology. The domain knowledge includes quantum physics, solid-state physics, photonics, electronic/optical materials and fabrication, and computational methods. The MPT strives to shape its students with both the theoretical background necessary to approach complex problems and the practical know-how to solve these problems in quantum technology, semiconductor technology, photonic technology, and technologies for advanced materials.
The NUS MPT programme has one intake per year, with candidates joining in August every year. This programme is offered as a full-time programme and a part-time programme.
For full-time candidates, the typical candidature of the MSc programme is one year, in line with other 40-MC Masters programmes within the university. The maximum period of candidature is two years.
For part-time candidates, the typical candidature of the MSc programme is two years, in line with other 40-MC Masters programmes within the university. The maximum period of candidature is four years.
