Available as a single programme in itself with minors, or as a reinforcement module in Physics, it comprises theoretical courses, exercices sessions, laboratory work and/or supervised study, and the accomplishment of a personal piece of work (project).
The first year is entirely in common with the bachelor's programme of Mathematical Science.
The possible choice of a minor is made as from the 3rd quadrimester. The minors on offer, at this stage, are : the minor in Mathematics (SC/MATH) and in Applied Sciences and Engineering : Applied Chemistry and Physics (FSA/MAPR).
The student may also choose another minor from the University programme list, on the basis of a project to be elaborated together with the study advisor.
Instead of doing a minor, the student may complete his programme with a complementary training programme in Physics for 30 credits, equally spread over the 2nd and 3rd years. This module comprises both compulsory and optional courses.
Language courses accompany the programme and are aimed at mastering scientific English.
The major in Physics comprises the elements listed below and totals 150 credits. The courses numbered must be followed in order ; the details of the prerequisites feature in the specifications of each of the courses.
