Master of Physics

Welcome to the website of the Master in Fundamental Physics and Applications at the University of Lille!

This Master's program trains students for a very wide range of careers, whether:

  • in academic or private research (researcher, teacher-researcher, research engineer), covering a wide range of physics fields (photonics, atmospheric science, complex and quantum systems, materials and their applications, particularly in the health sector...)
  • in the industrial sector (metrology, methods and quality engineers, etc.)
  • in the medical sector (hospital physicists, experts in medical imaging, nuclear medicine, etc.) 
  • in secondary education (associate physics teacher)
  • in the fields of innovation management, strategic intelligence and business intelligence (Consultant/Expert in the analysis of strategic scientific and technological information, Open Innovation Project Manager - Technology Scouting, etc.).

The various career paths illustrated below, and detailed in specific tabs, are supported by:

  • on top-level research laboratories at the University of Lille, accredited by several Labex (Laboratoire d'Excellence), Equipex (Équipement d'Excellence), CPER (Contrat Plan État Région) and European projects, and boasting first-rate technical platforms.  Research programs are part of the Graduate Program.
  • on strong relationships with companies and the socio-economic world in the Hauts-de-France region, France and Europe.
