Introduction to the programme

Do you want to work with physics, modelling and data science?
Master's programme in Physics and Scientific Modelling - what is it about?

Physics and Scientific Modelling provides training in experimental, theoretical and computer based methods to solve problems in physics and other fields. The weighting of experiments, theory and numeric techniques is determined by your choices in the study programme. 

The point of departure is the understanding of physics and the laws of nature, but in this study programme, there is a special focus on independent work in identifying which physical concepts and mathematical and numerical methods that are relevant to solve a given problem. In the projects, it is possible to immerse yourself in experimental, computer science and / or mathematical aspects of modelling. At the same time, it is possible to apply the physics competencies outside of classical physics subjects if you want a clear interdisciplinary profile.  

The aim of the study programme is to give you competencies and methods to work systematically and critically with physics, modelling and data science in connection with problems in a wide range of fields. 


As a graduate from Physics and Scientific Modelling, you will find employment with teaching, research and development, for example in the energy sector, hospital physics, medicine, finance, software development and at companies that offer modelling and consulting services.
