Physics

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

Most Physics PhD programs cover all aspects of the subject from Condensed Matter, Atomic and Biological Physics on-campus while Astronomy, Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics are often located on large, shared international facilities due to the expensive equipment required for such research.

Introduction

The Programme Doctoral Degree in Applied Physics Is an official university degree framed in the field of applied sciences and oriented to different aspects of science and technology. It is an interuniversity program between the University of Vigo (coordinating university) and the University of A Coruña.

The objective of this program is to provide the necessary skills to our students so that through the completion of their doctoral thesis they acquire the knowledge that allows them to carry out research projects and / or their incorporation into the industrial world.

Why study the degree

The global society is immersed in a continuous and rapid technological evolution, which some have already proposed as a new historical, technological and social acceleration. Physics, and in particular Applied Physics, is a link that can avoid what was called a technological gap, allowing us to establish contact between natural phenomena and technological and applied "phenomena". This will favor the development of companies related to new materials and the environment such as polymers, new fuels and refrigerants, ionic liquids, physical pollutants, meteorological and / or oceanic aspects related to the environment, etc....
