M1 Applied Physics
The first year of the Fundamental Physics and Applications Master's degree in Applied Physics provides students with a solid scientific training enabling them to continue their studies in an Applied Master's 2 leading to careers as physics engineers.
The program is particularly well suited to the finalized Master 2 Fundamental Physics and Applications courses taught at the University of Lille:
Outre de solides bases en physique générale (plusieurs unités communes aux parcours Physique Appliquée et Physique Fondamentale), une large part de l’enseignement est consacrée aux applications et compétences transverses : capteurs, mesure, programmation informatique, analyse optique et acoustique...
Experimental teaching plays a key role in the Physics Master's program;
The course emphasizes hands-on experience through practical classes and mini-projects:
- An introduction to scientific project management in semester 1
- A scientific project in semester 2
- An internship (2 to 4 months) in a company or research laboratory (outside the University of Lille) in France or abroad.
Skills acquired on completion of the Master's degree
- Know and master the basic concepts of general physics (thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, materials physics, etc.).
- Know how to use programming languages and digital tools applied to scientific computing, physics modeling and the man/machine interface.
- Know and know how to use appropriate measurement tools in a variety of scientific contexts.
- Understand and express themselves orally and in writing in English (fluent and scientific).
- Be capable of independently tackling a complex physics problem (theoretical, experimental or numerical).
The Master 1 Applied Physics is organized around four blocks of knowledge and skills, and in two semesters of 30 ECTS each.
- Advanced optics,
- Mechanical properties of matter,
- Semiconductor physics,
- Electromagnetism and Nuclear Physics.
- Data acquisition,
- Data processing and analysis,
- Mathematical tools.
- Student project.
Master 1 can be followed up with a Master 2 degree
The Master 1 in Fundamental Physics and Applications is particularly well-suited to the pursuit of Master 2 studies in the following fields, notably at the University of Lille:
Courses specific to each Master's 2 pathway are presented in specific materials.
