The educational program is structured into three programs oriented to fundamental physics, to applied physics or to mathematics for physics :

 

Physics, Photonics, and Nanotechnology (PPN)

The program combining macroscopic with nano- and quantum-scale topics aims at developing and improving students’ skills in fundamental optical physics, optical fibre communications, optoelectronics, laser technologies, ultrafast femtosecond optics, quantum information science, nanophotonics, nano-microscopy and nano-biosciences.

Entry requirements

Bachelor’s degree of Science or its equivalent.  Background knowledge in general physics, optics, electromagnetism and quantum physics is mandatory.

Career paths

PhD positions in academic & research institutions leading to recruitment in academia or in industry.

Photonics, Micronanotechnology, Time-Frequency Metrology, and Complex Systems (PICS)

The program provides a comprehensive list of courses covering theoretical, experimental and engineering aspects of photonics, micro/nano technologies, time-frequency metrology, information theory and complex systems, as well as complementary courses in disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge, as well as broad digital, societal, cultural, environmental, and entrepreneurial skills.

Entry requirements

Bachelor’s degree of Science  or its equivalent.  Background knowledge in general physics, optics, electromagnetism and quantum physics is mandatory.

Career paths

The program targets careers in industry (R&D engineer) or PhD positions either in academic institutions or industry.

Mathematical for Physics (Math4Phys)

The aim of the Program is to provide advanced lectures on the mathematical methods of modern theoretical physics in the framework of a mathematical curriculum. Courses giving an introduction to the mathematical methods used for such branches of theoretical physics as quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity, gauge theories, string theory, etc. as well as covering different fields of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis) and highlighting their applications to the problems of modern theoretical physics are proposed.

Entry requirements

Bachelor’s degree of Science or its equivalent with major in Mathematics or Physics. Students can apply directly for the second year (M2) if they have completed at least one year of graduate courses in Mathematics or Mathematical Physics.

Career paths

The main aim of the master program is to provide sufficient training to start a PhD preparation.
