The curriculum of the M.Sc. Program in Applied Physics is designed to give students potential skills in one of the offered streams in Applied Physics such as the Nanotechnology and Applied Condensed Matter, the Applied Photonics and the Applied Environmental Physics. The program  involves various educating methods learning skills including lectures, laboratory work, self-study, projects, and Master's research thesis. The student must study 4 core courses (total of 12 credits) and 6 elective courses (total of 18 credits). In addition, the student must complete a research project leading to a thesis (total of 6  credits). Accordingly, the total required credits for the master Program in Applied Physics is  36 credits.
