Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The graduates are oriented to the application of optoelectronics in the design of devices and instruments, to qualified usage of optical method in metrology, to the use of new technologies and nanotechnologies and corresponding devices for the surface modification for various purposes, to the use of computers for the design and for scientific calculations. Knowledge of physics and mathematics enables the graduates to work in various engineering areas. During their work on diploma project the students acquire practical experience either in engineering optics or in physics of surfaces and thin films. In engineering optics the student gains theoretical and experimental knowledge of optoelectronics, of sources, propagation and detection of light, of lasers, and of optical elements and systems. He also gets practice in application of general physical principles of measurement and of optical methods and instruments. The study of physics of surfaces and thin films is oriented to technology and analysis of thin films and coatings over materials used in various scientific and industrial disciplines. The student gains theoretical and experimental knowledge of vacuum physics, of sources, optics, and detection of particles. He also gets practice in production of nanostructures and in investigation of their properties. Creative work in modern laboratories is an important part of the study.

Successful and scientifically oriented MSc. graduates in this specialization can continue their studies in the three-years doctoral study programe quot Physical and Material Engineeringquot and acquire the PhD. degree.
