As a natural continuation of the undergraduate studies, students who meet the requirements can continue and expand their studies to get a Masters degree

M.Sc. in Applied Physics
The M.Sc. program in Applied Physics is designed for students interested to further their interests in scientific research with technological development. Most of the program’s graduates go on to work and assume leadership positions in Israel's High-Tech industry. Alternatively, the M.Sc. studies are a steppingstone for more advanced research, to be pursued as part of the offered Ph.D. Program in Applied Physics.
The Applied Physics program accepts students with an undergraduate degree in physics or electric engineering. Exception to this rule are possible, but an excellent foundation in undergraduate physics is expected. All student undergo an acceptance interview in which their background experience and match to the program will be assessed. Students with weak physics background may be required to complete additional physics courses.
The studies comprise theoretical courses, both mandatory and elective, and the completion of a research thesis. After submission of the thesis, a final oral M.Sc. exam completes the degree requirements. The program is designed to allow students to expand and deepen their scientific knowledge in their field of expertise, to gain experience in the basic technologies of that field, and to gain basic knowledge in other branches of science and engineering relevant to the chosen field of expertise. The program offers four specialization tracks: Optoelectronics, Microelectronics, Nanoscience and nanotechnology, and quantum technologies.
