The degree programme provides students with the methodological, experimental, theoretical and mathematical fundamentals of physics. Students develop a sound basic understanding of the field of classical, relativistic and quantum physics in relation to phenomenological and theoretical questions and their mathematical formalisation, together with the foundations of modern physics.
The course also equips students with a good grasp of modern laboratory techniques and the techniques for acquiring and analysing experimental data, basic knowledge of computer tools and their application to physics. Graduates possess an excellent command of mathematical methods, both in their application to physics and as modelling and system analysis tools.
The degree programme in Physics qualifies graduates to enter all sectors of work characterised by high technological innovation, providing a solid understanding of innovative methodologies and a good command of complex equipment. Physics graduates can pursue careers in the field of fundamental research, both theoretic and experimental.
Their competences also qualify them, moreover, to pursue a range of other occupations in the public and private spheres.
After the three-year degree programme, graduates have already acquired the necessary training to apply the methodologies of physics in a diverse range of fields, such as those of economics and biology, which offer a multitude of opportunities for physicists. Relevant sectors include industry, in particular electronics, research and development laboratories, the use of calculators, and the commercial technical and scientific sector.
Application and admission: Open.
There is a test to verify the knowledge, which must be taken before enrollment. The verification is carried out through the TOLC (the TOLC valid for the registration are the TOLC-S and the TOLC-I, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ).
Additional learning obligations (OFA)
Students who do not pass the entrance examination on maths, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.
OFA: English language
Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
Students with in-depth knowledge of foreign languages who wish to complete part of their university studies abroad may complete periods of study in various foreign universities, thereby obtaining an academic qualification from both their home university and the foreign one (Double Degree).
Mandatory for laboratory courses; highly recommended for other teaching courses.
Sede dei Corsi: i corsi si tengono presso le aule del Dipartimento di Fisica, via Celoria 16 o presso aule del Settore Didattico, Via Celoria 20
For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
