Programme of Physics of Molecules and Materials
The master specialisation Physics of Molecules and Materials comprises of
|A.||Mandatory courses - Physics of Molecules and Materials||18 EC|
|B.||Elective courses - Physics and Astronomy||24 EC|
|C.||Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy||60 EC|
|D.||Professional Preparation||2 EC|
|F.||Free electives||13 EC|
Note: If you are unsure how to create a coherent programme that prepares you for a Master's thesis, you can contact the specialisation coordinator Daniel Wegner for advice.
A. Mandatory Programme (18 EC)
|Quarter 1||Quarter 2|
|NWI-NM001B Electrodynamics (3 EC)|
|NWI-NM009B Solid State Physics (6 EC)|
|NWI-NM089B Molecular Physics (6 EC)|
|NWI-NM113 Student Seminar Physics of Molecules and Materials (3 EC)|
B. Elective courses - Physics and Astronomy (24 EC)
Elective courses should be chosen in consultation with the prospective supervisor or the coordinator of the Master specialisation. An overview of the elective courses offered in the Physics of Molecules and Materials specialisation can be found here. However, you are not restricted to this selection of Physics and Astronomy courses. Part of your elective course programme can take the form of a synergy track in Computational and Data Science.
C. Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy (60 EC)
D. Professional Preparation (2 EC)
E. Philosophy course (3 EC)
One of the following courses should be completed:
F. Free electives (13 EC)
Free electives can be chosen from any other specialisation or programme, not necessarily within Physics and Astronomy. You can also consider courses from the societal specialisations or NWI-FNWI002 Scientific English (3 EC, every quarter) to support your writing process.
