Advanced Topics In Physics


This curricular unit is composed of several modules described below. Each student must choose a total of four 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.

A detailed description of the modules for 2023-24 is in this pdf document
