Advanced Topics In Physics I


This curricular unit is composed of several modules described below. Each student must choose a total of six modules and be evaluated in three of them  to complete this unit.

Timetables will be arranged after students choices are known. Modules take usually 5/6 weeks with 3/4 contact hours per week.

Detailed description of the modules is in this pdf document
