Courses for Quantum Science and Technology

Degree requirements

The quantum science and technology track of the master programme in physics offers a wide range of courses. Each study period, you're required to select 15 credits worth of courses (typically two half-time courses, unless stated otherwise). Be sure to review the course requirements and reach out to the course coordinator if you have any questions.

Compulsory and alternative-compulsory courses

We recommend that you start your first year by selecting mainly among the compulsory courses. These courses serve as an introduction to higher studies in physics.

Two courses are compulsory:

  • Quantum Mechanics (FYSN27)
  • Quantum Physics in Research and Society (FYSN21)

In addition to the compulsory courses, you are required to choose a minimum of three out of the following seven courses:

  • Quantum Computation (FYST85)
  • Quantum Optics (FYST83)
  • Quantum Information Theory (FYST82)
  • Superconductivity (FYST84)
  • Light-Matter Interaction (FYST86)
  • Lasers (FYSN14)
  • The Physics of Low-dimensional Structures and Quantum (FYST79)

If you have taken a similar course during your bachelor's degree, contact the student administration to discuss any equivalences.

During the second year, you are required to conduct a master's degree project. We suggest opting for a full academic year project, equivalent to 60 ECTS credits, with course code FYSM64. Alternatively, you can pursue a one-semester project worth 30 ECTS credits, with course code FYSM34. If you choose the latter, you can either complete the project full-time for one semester or half-time for two semesters. In addition, you'll need to enroll in courses totaling an extra 30 ECTS credits.
