Education objectives

An Engineering Physics professional acts on both Physics and Engineering fields, namely on highly technological applications. Owning a solid knowledge on basic sciences and engineering as well as in recent applied physics subjects he is able to make a significant contribution to technological innovation by transforming science into technology.

Nova’s Physics Engineer is a multidisciplinary professional with diverse skills such as in atomic and molecular, nuclear, plasma physics, surface and interface physics, optics and optoelectronics, detectors, cryogenics and applied analytical techniques. This makes him able to:

  • Design solutions for planning, construction, use, develop and maintain devices, machines and systems for the benefit of the society;
  • Plan and supervise scientific experiments as well as perform data acquisition and interpretation;
  • Generally apply scientific, mathematical and technological knowledge on research and on the engineering process applied to problem recognition and solving;
  • Evaluate engineering projects;
  • Transversally communicate with other field professionals.

Evaluation rules

The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:

  1. Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
  2. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
  3. Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
  4. Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.

The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
