Master in Theoretical Physics and Applications


This two-year Master Course aims at providing students with a high-level formation in Theoretical and Computational Physics, together with a deeper insight in one selected research field : Statistical Physics, Quantum systems, Condensed matter,  Integrable Systems, Complex Systems, Dynamical Systems.

A broad spectrum of subjects is thus covered : from the mathematical accuracy of integrable models to the complexity of biological systems, social paradigms or communication networks. A wide horizon of applications is then open since these fields lie at crossroads to several domains of science : Mathematical and Statistical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Biology,  Economy and Sociology.

In addition to solid foundations in Fundamental Physics, the students will have acquired a reinforced formation in the domain they chose not only through the specialized courses they take during the third semester but also by the practical experience they will have obtained after four month of research work.

The first year (semesters S1-S2) is devoted to the study of the general theories and the relevant mathematical and computational methods constituting the basis of a formation in fundamental Physics. Its role is two-fold : to allow for harmonization of a heterogeneous population of students and to provide for a first contact with the chosen specialization path. In fact this program aims at offering to students coming from different horizons a common general background and the powerful tools to start working in fundamental Physics, as well as opening to them a broad spectrum of domains.

During the first semester of the second year, students will study advanced fundamental Physics courses as well as specialization courses. The second semester will be devoted to the realisation of a research project, including bibliography and personal work under the supervision of a tutor and an internship in a research laboratory chosen wit the agreement of the pedagogical council of the Master program. This research work will yield a “master thesis” concluded by a written report and a public defence.


Successful students following the MSc Theoretical Physics and Applications, will be awarded a French National Master diploma : "Master de Physique, parcours Physique et Modélisation, option Physique Théorique " ( Master in Physics, specialty Physics and modelisation, option Theoretical Physics ).

In addition, students integrating the French-Spanish international Master Program will also obtain the diploma : Master en Fisica y Tecnologias Fisicas from Zaragoza University.
