The curriculum of the Physics track Advanced Materials consists of 60 ECTS of courses, followed by a Master's Research Project of 60 ECTS. More information about the degree programme and its curriculum is available on the Student Portal.

In order to successfully complete the degree programme, each student must follow 8 mandatory courses (40 ECTS), as listed above, where students have to choose 3 courses from 'option group A'. From the optional courses listed below, 4 courses (20 ECTS) have to be chosen. In case the student prefers to take other courses in one of the categories, he/she needs to ask permission, in advance, by the Board of Examiners.

Optional courses and specializations

Out of all optional courses listed below, 4 courses (20 ECTS) must be chosen.

All courses are available to choose from, but for an optimal study programme it is recommended to pick one elective every period. The courses are divided into three sub-categories to offer different lines of specialization within the electives. These specializations are indicated by the following abbreviations:
- FMP: Fundamentals of Materials Physics;
- BBM: Biological and Bio-inspired Materials;
- Edu: Education.

The two courses in the category Education (Edu) offer students the possibility to get acquainted with the work of a high school Physics teacher in the Netherlands. The courses are taught in Dutch and have to be followed simultaneously. Upon successfull completion of both courses students have the possibility to follow the post-master degree programme 'Leraar Voorbereidend Hoger Onderwijs in de Bètawetenschappen' (LVHO) where they only still have to follow 50 ECTS, instead of the normal 60 ECTS.

** Due to unforeseen circumstances the course 'Surfaces and Interfaces (WMPH014-05)' in period 1A will not be given in this academic year. The courses 'Atomic and (Bio-)Molecular Interactions (WMPH046-05)' and 'Micromechanics (WMPH012-05)' are offered as alternatives for this year.

The four modules 'Academic Skills' (WMPH001-00), 'Career Perspectives' (WMPH18003), 'General Physics Colloquium' (WMPH002-00), and 'Scientific Integrity' (WMPH019-00) are not separate course units, but are a mandatory part of the Master's Research Project. They are designed to follow during a research project, but it is possible for students to do (parts of) these modules already during the first year of the master's degree programme.

Visit the Student Portal for more information about the Master's Research Project or about the mandatory modules mentioned above.
