Subjects in Applied Physics (Master's / Doctoral Program)

One of the educational goals of the syllabus on applied physics during the master's program is to arouse students' awareness of the rapidly changing developments in the field of study, particularly specialized areas, such as engineering. The syllabus stresses on basic knowledge so that students acquire high levels of essential academic skills before pursuing their specialized field of study.

Specialized subjects are provided for those subjects that are relatively common in other areas of study. The highly specialized fields are studied through seminars held at individual laboratories, where students from other laboratories are also invited to participate.

Types of subjects offered in Applied Physics


Compulsory subjects (Master's / Doctoral Program)

  • Research in Applied Physics IA, IB, IIA, IIB (Master's Program); IIIA, IIIB, IVA, IVB, VA, and VB (Doctoral Program)
  • Colloquim on Pure and Applied Sciences (Master's Program: 1 credit)

Basic subjects (Master's Program)

Six basic subjects (see below for details on introductory basic subjects) are provided for the entire program during the master's program, beginning with reviewing undergraduate-level subjects and providing the foundation for handling specialized fields of study. Though two subjects (6 credits) are required to complete the master's program, it is advisable that students take two introductory subjects and two advanced basic subjects.
