Asset n°2

Customize your curriculum

Asset n°3

Benefit from advanced courses delivered by experts, in close partnership with the Institut Polytechnique de Paris’s laboratories

The Concepts in Fundamental Physics Master’s program offers students a wide range of advanced courses to complete their studies in fundamental physics. This Year 2 Master’s program allows students to customize their curriculum through the wide choice of courses: theoretical physics, quantum physics, condensed matter physics, macroscopic physics and complexity, as well as many optional courses. This program prepares students for a PhD in fundamental physics, as well as applied research. Students will benefit from the facilities and excellence of the Laboratories of Institut Polytechnique de Paris.

Objectives

The Concepts in Fundamental Physics Master’s program enables students to:

  • Benefit from comprehensive, diversified training in theoretical and experimental fundamental physics 
  • Acquire knowledge in various fields including high-energy physics, statistical physics, quantum optics, solid-state physics, soft-matter physics, physical mechanics and biophysics 
  • Prepare for a PhD in fundamental physics based on a generalist approach

On graduation, students will be equipped to:

  • Pursue a PhD  
  • Occupy a position at a university or major research organization (CNRS, CEA, IN2P3) at the end of a PhD
  • Embark on a career in applied research in industry at the end of a PhD

Course details will be available when admission opens.
