Program description

Master's Degree in Engineering Physics

The master's degree in Engineering Physics is oriented towards frontier engineering based on advanced education in physics. Specialist engineering fields such as nanotechnology, nanoelectronics and biomedical engineering require an ever-growing number of professionals who have extensive training in advanced physics and sound knowledge of quantum physics, complex system physics and device physics, which can be applied both at the nanoscopic scale and in large-scale facilities.

Admission requirements

General requirements

  • An official Spanish university qualification or an official university qualification issued by a university in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that qualifies the holder for admission to a master's degree.
  • A qualification issued by a university in a country that is not in the EHEA. If the qualification has not been homologated, the UPC will verify that the course of study corresponds to a level of education equivalent to an official Spanish university degree and that the qualification obtained would provide admission to a master’s degree in the country in which it was awarded. This access route in no way implies the homologation of the qualification or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to the master's degree. The master's degree will, however, be fully and legally valid.

Specific requirements

Applicants must prove that they have a bachelor's degree in Physics or Engineering Physics and that they have passed 240 ECTS credits.
