Programme profile

The Degree Programme in Physics aims at training Physicists with a solid basic knowledge and an open and flexible mind, predisposed to implementing scientific methods, problem-solving and with the ability to learn innovative methods and techniques quickly.

Specifically, the degree programme aims at training Physicists who: 

- possess an adequate basic knowledge of the different sectors of classic and modern physics;
- have the knowledge and ability to use the adequate mathematics and computer programming tools for the description and the modelling of physical systems, analysing with scientific methods large volumes of data;
- have the knowledge and ability to use laboratory tools and technology to conduct experimental research aimed at understanding physical phenomena;
- have a deep understanding of physics' great cognitive, social and applicative challenges (theoretical, experimental and applied).

Therefore, graduates have the ability to:
- apply the scientific method for analysing, representing and modelling physical reality;
- use self-learning tools to keep up to date with science and technology's progress;
- swiftly integrate in the world of work, also as part of a team;
- elaborate theories and develop scientific arguments, in writing or orally, in both Italian and English.

To this end, the Degree Programme is structured in three thematic areas that develop complementary knowledge and skills:
- "Mathematics and Physics and Mathematics" Area;
- "Classic and Modern Physics" Area;
- "Physics and Programming Laboratory" Area;
and includes activities aimed at acquiring:
- basic knowledge of mathematics, computer programming and chemistry;
- knowledge of classic and modern physics, focussing on three disciplinary areas: Experimental and Applied Physics; Theoretical Physics and Physics Fundamentals; Micro-Physics and structure of matter;
- in related areas such as Physics and Mathematics, Astrophysics, Geophysics and Space Physics;
- in transversal areas, such as English (level B2) and the final examination preparation, which can take place in external structures, public or private, in Italy or abroad, under international agreements.

Access to further study
