Official Master's Degree in Physics of Biological Systems and Radiophysics

Introduction

This programme has been replaced by the Master's degree in Modelling in Science and Engineering.

The disciplines of physics and biology share a large number of specific aspects given that all biological systems are formed by physical components, atoms, molecules, membranes, etc. For this reason, experimental analysis elements in these systems are carried out with devices, mechanisms and instruments which, to be operated correctly, require thorough and consolidated knowledge in physics. This fact has spurred on an important increase in scientific and professional activities dedicated to the field of biophysics which stems from the fusion of objectives and procedures carried out in both disciplines.

Ideal student profile

The Master's degree is designed for students with an interest in biophysics, medical physics, radiology protection, environmental radiophysics, neurophysics, etc. who want to begin a research or professional career in those fields. Students must have a solid background in physics, including statistical physics, electromagnetism and optics.
