Undergraduate Courses The faculty of technology offers M.Sc programs; the swedish name of the degree is "CivilingenjÃÂ¶r". 666 students are annually accepted in four disciplines: M: Mechanical engineering (150) D: Computer science and engineering (120) Y: Applied physics av Electrical engineering (180) I: Industrial engineering and Management (216) The nominal time for the M.Sc. program is 4,5 years. The first three years mainly consist of compulsory courses in basic subjects. After two and a half years the students make a choice between different specializations (profiles), where some courses are compulsory (profile courses) and the rest, within some limits, can be composed to fit the students own interest.
The Y-students can choose between ten profiles, three of which are related to the Department of Physics and Measurement technology (IFM).
The "IFM-profiles" are: Applied Physics Physical Electronics Measurement Technology Most of the courses given by IFM are for the Y-program, and in addition some basic courses are given for the other programs.
The courses are classified in two fields: "Physics" and "Measurement technology".
