Doctorate in Physics in Spain

See PhD Programs in Physics in Spain 2017

Physics

A Doctor of Philosophy degree, short Ph.D is an advanced academic degree earned in various fields, signifying major interests and accomplishments in research.

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.

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state and a member state of the European Union. It is located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Spanish universities regulate access to their own degrees and they fix the academic fees. They can also offer unofficial postgraduate degrees. The capital city Madrid has possibly the largest number of bars per capita of any European city and a very active nightlife.

Best PhDs in Physics in Spain 2017. 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. What is learned Students can choose from three specialties. Physics Applied to Materials Physics Applied to the Environment Applied laser technologies Students can integrate into one of these lines of research: Thermofísica de Liquidos Science and Technology of Polymers Applied Physics of the Environment Applied Laser Technologies Computational Physics Lines of investigation These are the lines...

Campus Full time Part time 3 - 5 years September 2017 Spain Ferrol + 1 more

The Doctoral Program in Laser, Photonics and Vision is an Interuniversity program that is offered jointly with the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Vigo. [+]

Introduction The program of Doctorate in Laser, Photonics and Vision Is an Interuniversity program that is offered jointly with the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Vigo. It is designed for advanced training in the field of Laser technologies, Photonics and Vision techniques. Its final objective is to provide a training of scientific excellence to future researchers and professionals in this field, thus responding to the growing demand for training for its integration into the national and international R & D & I system. Why study the degree In socio-political terms, the scientific-technical sector of science and optical and photonic technology is of extreme importance for the great challenges of the 21st century. The European Union has identified Photonics as one of six key enabling technologies (KET), whose development will determine the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of European industry's long-term employment. Investment in these technologies will be given priority attention in EU R & D & I policies, not only because of their impact on the Union's industrial and innovation capacity, but also because of their effect on social challenges such as Efficiency and independence of energy, health and health care or transportation, among others. The program groups the human and material resources of the different research groups related to the areas of Laser, Photonics and Vision. All of them have extensive experience in the academic and research field, reflected in the direction and realization of numerous scientific projects, publications and doctoral theses. Lines of investigation These are the lines... [-]

Needs for Novel Doctoral Training Strategies

The scientific, technological and economic importance of optics and photonics contrasts with its minor role in the German university system. The curricula of the traditional disciplines do not provide a profound optics and photonics education. Thus, the initial stages of diploma or doctoral theses have to serve as “training-on-the-job”, addressing only special aspects rather than the entire field of optics and photonics.

The leading graduate schools that specifically focus on optics and photonics are mainly located in the U.S. (e.g., CREOL, Orlando, Florida; Rochester, New York; Tucson, Arizona) and have developed into world renowned centers for science and technology. Importantly, the optics and photonics research at these institutions is complemented by corresponding undergraduate and graduate education programs. In this respect there is need of a new educational approach in Germany. Hence, we have developed and implemented both M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in the area of “Optics & Photonics”. The M.Sc. course provides an adequate education, spanning the bridge between undergraduate optics classes and the required in-depth knowledge that is essential for cutting-edge research. The best students enter the Ph.D. program and find the ideal ground for world-class research. Their thesis work benefits from the multidisciplinary character of the “Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (KSOP)”.... [-]
