The Master’s degree programme in Physical Engineering is multidisciplinary due to the in-depth study of various fields pertaining to physics and a wide range of industrial professions and specialisations as well as research based on advanced technologies.

This Master’s degree programme is founded on:

  • Formal concepts associated with the field
  • The use numerical simulation tools
  • Experiments based on practical work


Your profile


  • Have solid knowledge of physics and mathematics;
  • Seek a programme that focuses on current technological and scientific issues and the national and international job market
  • Want to participle in the design of high tech products: optics, thin strata, magnetic devices, transducers, sensors, nuclear tools, quantum physics, electronic materials, systems based on the interaction of radiation materials or objects produced from nanotechnologies


Your future job

Civil engineers are present in all industrial sectors: the chemical industry, pharmaceuticals and food production, electronics and telecommunication industry, energy, metallurgy, aeronautics, design and civil engineering, large scale distribution, banking or consulting services, nanotechnologies and medical technology, etc.

They play a role as researchers and developers overseeing production or management and holding positions in marketing and sales (of high tech products).

We find them in finance departments, information technology fields, quality control, the public sector, higher education and the Ministry of equipment and transport (

Your programme

This Master’s degree offers:

  • Solid training applied physics
  • An interdisciplinary approach at the interface between physics and material sciences
  • Experience in laboratories and with research projects
  • Exposure to the industrial sector: factory visits, internships, projects carried out in companies
  • The opportunity to complete coursework abroad

This Master’s degree programme consists of compulsory classes that aim to round out basic knowledge as well as a large selection of elective courses grouped into five majors that may potentially be completed by classes taken at UCLouvain.
