ObjectivesGeneral objectives:

The Program of Master of Science in Physics has two main objectives:

• Deliver a solid training in the fundamental areas of Physics, including: Classical Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics, with the purpose of training qualified specialists to enter PhD programs in Physics
• Provide specialized training in one of the lines of research of the Department of Physical Sciences, to initiate the graduate in scientific research.
Specific objectives:
After graduating from the Program, the students will be able to:
• Access doctoral studies in a specialty of Physics, as they will possess a solid training in the four fundamental areas of Theoretical Physics: Classical Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics.
• To contribute to the academic development of basic or applied Physics in different institutions of higher education, at regional and national level.

Graduate profileIn general terms, the graduate will have:
• Appropriate theoretical and practical knowledge to systematically develop and increase both their creative problem-solving skills in physical sciences and their skills at a higher level in scientific-technological research.
• The ability to analyze, synthesize and project training acquired within the scope of its scientific competence.
• Adequate capacity to continue doctoral studies.

Admission requirements

The applicant should have a Bachelor of Applied Physics or Bachelor of Physics. Also professionals who hold a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering Sciences or have a professional degree whose level and content of studies is equivalent to that necessary to obtain a bachelor's degree, may be considered by the Postgraduate Direction of the University. IN this case, the application must follow a report from the Director of the Program in consultation with the Academic Committee of the Program.
