Physics of advanced materials for energy processing
Physics of Advanced Materials for Energy Processing (PAMEP) program will be conducted solely in the English language with emphasis on preparing its students for their future work as scientists or in science-related areas. The subject matter of the program is closely tied to physics of new materials which currently have been applied or have its potential application in energy generation, conversion, storage and saving. The goal of this program is to equip a student with technical expertise necessary for an academic career (postgraduate degree studies) or a career in private sector corporations which strictly rely on detailed knowledge of scientific research (for instance, companies involved in research, producing or servicing advanced measuring tools and companies interacting with both science and the industry).
PAMEP studies will be conducted at the Faculty of Physics in close cooperation with the NanoBioMedical Centre and the Faculty of Chemistry at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland.
PAMEP – innovative way to get M. Sc. degree in physics-related fields:
- Individual approach: a limited number of students, the possibility to select the majority of classes, a close contact with the supervisors.
- Research: with the beginning of the second semester, students will join active research groups and start working on genuine scientific projects.
- Publication: the master’s dissertations can be based on the publication co-authored by the students.
- External practises: the last semester is devoted to an internship in another academic institution or in a private sector.
The graduate program offers classes strictly connected to Physics (for instance, solid state physics, thermodynamics, magnetism) but also combined Physics and Chemistry (for instance: photovoltaics, solar energy, soft matter, crystallography), Physics and Biology (for instance: artificial photosynthesis, bionanostructures) and Physics and Nanomaterial Engineering (for instance: conducting nanostructures, one- and two-dimensional materials).
Our students get familiarized not only with theories but also with experimental methods of materials research. Additionally, they participate in specialized courses exploring the advanced modern material characterization techniques (for instance: electron and atomic force microscopy, optical spectroscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, time-resolved laser spectroscopy, neutron scattering), material fabrication (for instance, lithography, thin film deposition, chemical methods) and theoretical computation or computer simulation methods applied in materials physic.
