The MSc Applied Physics is a calendar year programme intended for graduates of physical science and engineering. UL Physics works with companies such as Analog Devices, COOK Medical, Intel, Seagate and BorgWarner. This engagement advances science, develops new products and processes, and creates employment opportunities for our graduates.
The course is delivered by researchers at the cutting edge of next generation technologies. They have an outstanding track-record in producing scientific publications, and intellectual property e.g. patents. Our researchers are members of the Bernal Institute at UL which is one of the leading research institutes in Ireland.
The Bernal Institute houses nationally unique scientific infrastructure for the preparation and characterisation of novel materials and components. The Bernal laboratory of advanced microscopy houses the FEI Titan Transmission Electron Microscope, which is run by one of the MSc programme lecturers, Professor Ursel Bangert, a world leading microscopy researcher.
The objective of the MSc Applied Physics programme is to meet the needs of graduates who wish to increase their skills with an understanding of applied physics and knowledge of the physical principles underlying material properties, and the operation of processes and equipment, for the research and high technology sectors.
