The bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics, the first of its kind in Spain, is aimed at students with a strong aptitude for physics and mathematics who wish to apply the principles of these basic sciences to technological problems in a multidisciplinary environment, and who accept the challenge of inventing the technology of the future and pursuing research that will transform the world. You will learn about fundamental concepts of physics as they are applied in various branches of engineering, gaining knowledge that will enable you to understand basic scientific principles and their application in the key emerging technologies that will drive development in the years ahead: photonics, nanotechnology, micro- and nanoelectronics, advanced materials and biotechnology. With this grounding, you will be able to pursue any master’s degree offered worldwide that is related to physics and new technologies, as well as others master's degrees in engineering disciplines such as telecommunications engineering, electronic engineering, industrial engineering and bioengineering. Graduates may be employed in industry, technology companies, research and development centres and laboratories, universities and public administrations, where they may occupy posts of greater or lesser responsibility depending on their experience, aptitudes and personal interests, or they may become entrepreneurs.
