The objective of the MSc Applied Physics programme is to meet the needs of graduates who wish to augment their skills with an understanding of applied physics and knowledge of the physical principles underlying material properties, and the operation of processes and equipment, for the high technology sector.
The UL Physics Department is working with companies such as Analog Devices, COOK Medical, Intel Corporation, Seagate and BorgWarner. This engagement advances science, develops new products and processes, and also creates employment opportunities for our graduates. The MSc Applied Physics is a calendar year programme intended for graduates of science, particularly those with backgrounds in general physics, astrophysics, and physics education. The programme is also suitable for graduates of engineering, subject to experience.
The MSc involves course work which extends over two trimesters and a work project which is carried out on a part-time basis in trimester 1 and 2 and on a full time basis in the final summer trimester. A passing grade in the entire project element will be a requirement to graduate with a MSc award.
The aim of the MSc is to meet the needs of graduates who wish to augment their existing skills with an understanding of the methodology of physics and a knowledge of the physical principles underlying the operation of industrial processes and equipment.
