The purpose of the Doctorate in Applied Physics and Technology is to train students in applied research and development. The program brings together the work of several research teams with a common interest in technological development at the highest levels. These teams are engaged in international research in various topics considered priority issues by the European Union, such as technology, nanostructures, micro and nanoelectronics, photonics, advanced materials manufacturing techniques, strategic issues, climate studies and energy efficiency. Thus, this program approaches a wide range of current issues and is unique in its fostering of interdisciplinary interaction and special attention to the constant technological advances that society demands.
This doctorate is aimed at licentiates or undergraduates in Physics, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Materials Engineering, Environmental Sciences and similar degrees, who hold master’s degrees related to the field of expertise of this doctorate, namely, micro and nanotechnology, lasers and photonics, energy and climate.
