Programmes in Physics

Science and Technology Foundation Year Programme (in Swedish)
The Science and Technology Foundation Year Programme is an authorising education in a university environment which prepares for continued studies. Those who are admitted to and complete the foundation year get a reserved place for a Bachelor’s programme, civil engineering programme or university engineering programme at Uppsala University.

Bachelor's Programme in Physics, 180 credits (in Swedish)
The Bachelor's Programme in Physics gives opportunities to both specialising and broadening. You have quite a lot freedom to design your education according to interest, and can choose between the specialisations general physics, astronomy or meteorology. During year 3 when you specialise after the more general courses of the first years, you may also profile yourself towards geophysics. The programme is constructed to lead to a Bachelor’s degree in physics.

Bachelor Programme in Nuclear Engineering, 60 credits (in Swedish)
The programme is a one year advanced training leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in nuclear power technology, which is a vocational degree. The programme may be studied by someone who has previously studied at least two years of a university or master’s engineering programme. In the education is included courses in nuclear power relevant subjects like light water reactor technology, materials and nuclear fuel technology, steam turbine technology, nuclear power security, electric power technology and project management. The programme ends with a degree project carried out in industry. The education gives the opportunity to work as an engineer within nuclear power industry.

Master Programme in Engineering Physics, 300 credits (in Swedish)
The Master Programme in Engineering Physics fits you who want a broad and genuine engineering education with the opportunity to specialize.

Master Programme in Energy Systems Engineering, 300 credits (in Swedish)
The Master Programme in Energy Systems Engineering in Uppsala is for you who want to be involved with developing the energy supply of the future and create possibilities for a sustainable development.

Teacher Education Programme in Physics and Mathematics (in Swedish)
The education leads to a teacher degree with a focus on work in upper secondary school. Depending on which subjects you have in your exam there is also the opportunity to work in elementary school grades 7–9.

Master's programme in Physics, 120 credits
The Master's Programme in Physics is developed in coordination with research groups at Uppsala University. During the programme’s first three terms, you may choose from a range of advanced physics courses, thus providing a specialisation in one field of physics. You may also choose courses from other fields (of physics) in order to create an individual profile for your master degree.

Master's Programme in Materials Science, 120 credits

Master's Programme in Biophysics, 120 credits
The Master's Programme in Biophysics is an interdisciplinary program at the intersection between physics and biology, and provides a basis on how to understand complex biological systems at the molecular level using fundamental physics concepts and methods. This cross-disciplinary effort spans over four departments at Uppsala University, across physics, biology, chemistry and engineering, who run research focused on unraveling structure and dynamics of biological systems and offer Master research projects.

Master's Programme in Quantum Technology, 120 credits
