Master of Science in Engineering, Degree Programme in Engineering Physics Karlstad University



Course info


Engineering physicists have a variety of career options thanks to their broad knowledge of general and applied physics. With a theoretical understanding of physical phenomena they contribute to the development of new technological applications in areas such as nanotechnology, in which the quantum structure of matter is used to develop new applications, for instance, molecular electronics, organic solar cells and quantum computers.


The programme provides specialisation in engineering physics with an emphasis on applications in materials and nanotechnology through advanced theoretical courses in physics and mathematics, experimental techniques and simulation and modelling of materials. Nanostructured surface and solar cells are examples of areas of specialisation. There are also possibilities to study other subjects at Karlstad University or abroad.

Form of Instruction

Instruction i given in the form of lectures, classes, practices, laboratory work, and as project work under supervision.

Employment Market

Engineering physicists have broad and varied career options. They work with materials development and the simulation of complex systems, or with research in innovative industries. The analytical abilities sharpened in this programme can open opportunities in computing or finance. Wherever physics gives rise to new technical possibilities, engineering physicists will carry on the development, perhaps in their own business. You will have a solid foundation in technology, natural sciences, and mathematics, as well as the ability to cooperate and communicate. Your competencies will be of use in many technical areas, especially where creativity, leadership, and a holistic view are also required.


Students who meet the general as well as the special requirements will, on completion of the programme, be awarded a Degree of Master of Science in Engineering, Engineering Physics. For examination and assessment regulations, see under the heading "Learning outcomes" in the programme study plan.

Further Studies

Upon completion of the programme, you may continue with doctoral studies. The subject in which your doctor's degree will be awarded will depend on your previous studies. You also need to meet the prerequisites for doctoral studies of the subject chosen.
