Doctorate in Physics in Spain

See PhD Programs in Physics in Spain 2017

Physics

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

A Physics PhD lets you develop of a broad background in basic physics, and expand your research abilities in a more specialized area such as Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Applied Physics, Quantum Physics, Optics and many more.

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. The Doctoral Program in Asrtrofísica is the result of the merger of the previous PhD in Astrophysics and Physics Doctoral Program Structure of Matter. Both doctoral programs have the Mention of Excellence of the Ministry of Education and Science. Context Scientific, Academic and Social Justifies Proposal Title The Doctoral Program in Asrtrofísica presented is the result of the merger of the previous PhD in Astrophysics and Physics Doctoral Program Structure of Matter. Both doctoral programs have the Mention of Excellence of the Ministry of Education and Science. The huge international strength of research in astrophysics at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands due largely to researchers who have been trained in this center. This has been possible thanks to the implementation of a successful PhD program that has formed in recent years, a immensa proportion of Spanish astrophysicists. Astrophysics is a multidisciplinary experimental science that integrates diverse areas of physics with multiple connections with Mathematics, Geology, Chemistry, Biology, Technology and Computing. Currently Astrophysics has become a scientific discipline of great interest to the society that supports research as a priority area. This interest is also reflected in the daily press, at conferences and exhibitions for the general public, and also a significant demand for academic training by university students. Astronomy is probably the oldest science known and practiced. Astrophysics, which arises from the application of physics to the study of the structure, composition and evolution of stars, has been developed in... [-]

PhD in Plasma Physics and Nuclear Fusion

The PhD Programme has been awarded with a Quality distinction by the Spanish Education and Culture Ministry.

Aims

The PhD Programme in Plasma Physics and Nuclear Fusion aims to provide the students with a solid background in plasma physics and nuclear fusion, as well as in the research methods used in the field with a competent ability to evaluate results. It is also expected that students publish original contributions (including articles in scientific journals) and that they show the capacity for team work and the required aptitude to enhance the scientific and technological progress, within professional and academic contexts....

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)”.... [-]
