The Master graduate in Physics at the University of Camerino, will be able to: possess a deep knowledge of classical and modern physics, and of the methods of physics as a whole; apply advanced calculus techniques, of both formal and numerical nature; model a great variety of natural phenomena and of technological problems; apply the main experimental techniques, perform measurements in a completely independent way, and critically analyze data.
In particular, specialization in the following fields can be achieved:
Assessment of learning outcomes
The assessment of the knowledge and abilities acquired in an educational activity is carried through the evaluation of a written and/or oral exam at the end of the educational activity. In the case of a laboratory activity, the final evaluation may involve also a practical test in the lab. The result of tests held during the course can also be considered. However, the participation to these tests is optional for the students and any negative result will not preclude admission to the final exam. Learning activities are evaluated by a mark out of thirty, with the possibility of the additional recognition of “lode” (with praise).
Admissions rules and entry requirements
Students possessing a three-year university degree or equivalent foreign qualification are eligible to register for the Master degree in Physics (“Laurea Magistrale in Fisica”). The student who wants to enrol to the Master in Physics must possess a good knowledge and understanding of:
- Classical physics
- Quantum physics
- Mathematical analysis
- Geometry and linear algebra
- Basic experimental techniques
- Use of basic computing systems and their application to data acquisition and processing.
Assessment of the personal preparation of eligible students
Students with an Italian bachelor's degree in Physics
Students not satisfying at least one of these conditions will have to afford a colloquium in order to be admitted to the Master.
Students who are about to earn a bachelor's degree in physics can register conditionally (“sub condicione”) for the master's degree in physics. The conditions are that by October 1 (beginning of the new academic year) the students must have obtained at least 165 credits, and that by April 15 (of the following year) the students should earn their bachelor's degree in physics.
Students with an Italian Bachelor degree in other disciplines
- Passed examinations corresponding to at least 70 credits in the field of physics (SSD FIS/01-08);
- Passed examinations corresponding to at least 30 credits in the field of mathematics and computer science (SSD MAT/01-09, INF/01, ING-INF/05).
All other students
A committee will select the candidates on the basis of their transcript of studies and, if deemed necessary, by an interview. The selected candidates will receive a pre-admission letter, necessary for getting VISA. The enrolment will be finalized upon arrival at Unicam, after an interview with the coordinator of the master's degree in physics.
Teaching organization of Master Degree
To finalize their enrolment students are required to choose among the majors proposed below and notify the choice through the form here.
- Individual study plans can also be proposed through the form here for approval by a faculty committee.
- Since 2019 Unicam students can take up four courses of the master’s in physics program at Università Statale di Milano without additional fees.
- Quantum information and Quantum computation courses will be taught in alternate years.
- Grants favoring the completion of exams and thesis work at other national and international institutions are available through the Physics Division (see link,in Italian).
