The educational program is structured into three programs oriented to fundamental physics, to applied physics or to mathematics for physics :

Physics, Photonics, and Nanotechnology (PPN)

The master program aims at training students in fundamental, both theoretical and experimental, physics with applications in photonics, nanotechnology, and quantum technologies. This combination, innovative at the level of a master program, is well aligned with priority investments in research at the European and international level, with thematic areas of growing demand for highly trained students, able to embark in a doctoral programme.

Photonics, Micronanotechnology, Time-Frequency Metrology, and Complex Systems (PICS)

The Master PICS program provides a comprehensive program of courses covering theoretical, experimental and engineering aspects of photonics, micro/nano technologies, time-frequency metrology, information theory and complex systems. It is designed to cover a selection of topics at the interface of physics and engineering sciences, closely integrated with domains of research excellence developed in the Region of Bourgogne Franche-Comté (BFC).

Mathematics for Physics (Math4Phys)

The recent progress in several fields of theoretical physics (such as high energy physics, astrophysics, quantum, and nonlinear optics or condensed matter physics) required numerous very sophisticated mathematical tools. In these frontline research fields, it became clear that a new understanding of physical systems going from cold atom gases to black holes is impossible without a new insight into underlying mathematical structures. This kind of problems requires a new interdisciplinary approach and specialists with double competence: in Physics and in different fields of modern Mathematics. Read more …
