General organization:
 

Aim:

Engineering Physics combines an engineering education with an academic education in physics and mathematics. It is founded on a scientific basis, and is characterized by susceptibility and critical reasoning.

The aim of the programme Engineering Physics is that all students acquire a solid base in mathematics, in theoretical and experimental physics, as well as in technology, and an ability to use these tools in order to formulate, model, analyze, solve and communicate problems within physics and physics-based technology, alone and in collaboration with others. The last two years of studies are intended to be an intensification and a specialization within areas in which the students have acquired basic knowledge during the first three years of studies.

The programme aims at meeting the demands of industry and academia as regards specialists as well as generalists with very good knowledge of mathematics and science, also with very goof capacity for problem solving and for quick acquirement and developing of new knowledge.

 

Learning outcome:

A person with a degree from Engineering Physics should be able to show:

1. Knowledge and understanding:
1.1. wide and deep knowledge whithin mathematics and physics;
1.2. good ability to identify, formulate and solve science and technology problems, theoretically as well as experimentally.

2. Skills and abilities:
2.1. ability to evaluate and interpret information, critically and independently;
2.2. insight into the need of and ability to perform team work and collaboration in groups with various composition;
2.3. ability to describe and discuss his/her conclusions and the knowledge they are based on, in speech and in writing, in Swedish and in English, in dialogue with various groups.

3. Values and approach:
3.1. ability to analyze and assess situations and problems, taking into account relevant scientific, social, environmental and ethical aspects;
3.2. ability to debate and argue;
3.3. insight into the need of continued further education, regardless of the chosen field of activity.

4. Digitasation:
ability to identify situations, in which he/she, with or without help by specialists, can use relevant digital instruments to promote progress; consciousness of the influence digital techniques have on society and of the ethical problems which can arise, and ability to communicate the knowledge thereof.
