Study year 1

Master's Programme, Engineering Physics, 120 credits (TTFYM), Programme syllabus for studies starting in autumn 2018

The following courses are part of study year one.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2018/2019. For other academic years, different application codes and study periods may apply.

Specialisations

Track, Theoretical Physics (TFYA)

At least 25 hp of the conditionally elective courses has to be studied. The listing of conditionally elective courses as belonging to year 1 or year 2 is only indicative. Provided that the students fulfil the prerequisites, the courses can be taken during either year.

After consultation with the track guide, students may choose appropriate courses from all the course lists of the different tracks. It is also possible, after consultation with the programme director, to choose other, non-listed, courses.

Track, Optical Physics (TFYC)

At least 25 hp of the conditionally elective courses has to be studied. Several courses are listed as conditionally elective for both year 1 and year 2. This means that the students are free to take these courses during either year,as long as the prerequisites are fulfilled (see course descriptions).

Among the conditionally elective courses there is one that can be studied at Stockholm University:

FK7037 Introduction to quantum information and quantum computation.

After consultation with the track guide, students may choose appropriate courses from all the course lists of the different tracks. It is also possible, after consultation with the programme director, to choose other, non-listed, courses.
