Physics Master's Program (with Thesis)
The Department of Physics offers two-year programs of advanced graduate study leading to the degrees of Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Physics. These programs have been established to enable students with strong research motivation to develop their interests through advanced study. The programs of study are accordingly designed as flexibly as possible, in order to enable students to shape their studies as far as possible in accordance with their own specific interests. The Department of Physics has an active General Relativity and Cosmology faculty group, which produces a significant number of important publications in international physics journals every year. Recently, research activities in biomedical optics, biophotonics and nanophotonics have been initiated.
The M.S. program entails the satisfactory completion of at least 21 credits (4 core courses and 3 electives), together with completion of a thesis. Core courses are offered in the following areas: Mathematical Methods in Physics (I), Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetic Theory (I), and Quantum Mechanics; elective courses may be in physics or a related subject, depending on the research interests of the student and subject to the approval of the advisor.
For M.S: Candidates for admission to the M.S. Program are required to have completed a B.S. degree in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering (probably Electrical Engineering).
