The Physics program student will gain knowledge about the laws of physics and the methods used in its description and application. Therefore, the student will be able to work in academic research in physics in universities or other research institutes; also, he or she will be capable to carry out development and improvement of new technologies, working closely with innovative industries.
The Physicist is a versatile professional, capable to solve new problems, identifying patterns and applying mathematical, computational, and experimental methods in the quest for answers. Moreover, physicists should be professionals capable to constantly renew themselves, acquiring or developing new skills.
The Physics program holds an academic level of excellence, its faculty is composed of professors who conduct research on current and dynamic areas, and who regularly publish in world-renowned journals. The program’s faculty maintain collaboration with several researchers in Brazil and worldwide, generating opportunities for students to make visits, internships, or even pursue Sandwich Doctorate abroad.
