Interisciplinary Academic Master in Applied Physics
The objectives of the Interdisciplinary Master’s Degree in Applied Physics are:
- generate quality knowledge and train human resources such that the final product is greater than the sum of the individual contributions of the areas of knowledge involved, including also the necessary social insertion of the scientific and technological production thus generated.
- to promote within UFRJ the emergence of new areas of knowledge and the development and social insertion of this knowledge produced, considering that one of the greatest challenges of this century is that of interdisciplinarity, that is, the (re) connection of knowledge.
- The target audience of the program are graduates of undergraduate courses in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, economics, or some other course, as well as professionals involved with the industry, who wish to work with applications projects of physics in their specific areas of activity.
- The curricular structure includes:
- Compulsory Disciplines (120 hours of class – 8 credits)
- Elective Disciplines (240 class hours – 16 credits)
