Master in Theoretical Physics and Applications

1st Year (M1) : General Fundamental Physics

1st semester (S1)

  • Quantum Mechanics I (3 ECTS)
  • Quantum Mechanics II (3 ECTS )
  • Condensed Matter Physics I (3 ECTS)
  • Statistical Mechanics (4 ECTS)
  • Electrodynamics (3 ECTS)
  • Applied Mathematics I  : differential equations (3 ECTS)
  • Introduction to Symmetries in Physics (4 ECTS)
  • Computational Physics and Modelisation (4 ECTS)
  • Lab Hours (3 ECTS)
  • French for Foreigners / Scientific Communication in English (*) (6 ECTS)

2nd semester (S2)

  • Quantum Mechanics III (4 ECTS)
  • Condensed Matter Physics II (3 ECTS)
  • Materials Physics and Phase Transitions (3 ECTS)
  • Monte Carlo Methods (4 ECTS)
  • Applied Mathematics II :  Introduction to differential geometry, tensors (4 ECTS)
  • Tutored Projects  (6 ECTS)

The subjects of the tutored project are to be chosen by the student in agreement with the pedagogical committee ; a list of proposals is available, for instance: General Relativity and Cosmology, Introduction to Quantum Information, Soft matter, Distributions, Quantum Mechanics in Materials

One tutored project (3ECTS) amounts to a full time work of two weeks, plus writing a report and preparing an oral presentation (only one oral presentation for the two projects is required).

The student may decide, with the approval of the Master committee, to gather the two projects into one larger one, it can even be a one month internship.
