Field(s) of education and training (ISCED-F)

  • Physics (0533)

Main focus

Physics is a fundamental science essential for the scientific and technologic development of any country. The study of Physics is not only useful for students who are particularly interested in basic research. It also provides a very broad and versatile type of training that is useful for many other job positions.
According to recent studies, the most valuable professional skill of a physicist is versatility. Therefore, the main objective of this degree program is to train professionals to have a capacity of analysis that allows them to model complex situations and solve problems of very diverse nature. After completing their studies, students will be able to teach, do research in fundamental and applied subjects, and perform technological development activities, as well as activities in the financial, health and industrial sectors, public organisms, and private companies.

Competences

1. Observe and classify natural phenomena using the knowledge acquired from different branches of Physics.
2. Possess a general knowledge of the main issues of Physics, at the theoretical as well as the experimental level, including a focus on more specific topics.
3. Apply the knowledge acquired to the professional environment and be able to present and discuss ideas in academic contexts as well as more general ones.
4. Gather information about a topic of interest, analyse it, and provide a reasoned judgement, based on the data.
5. Analyse problems in different fields, extract the most relevant information, and propose solutions themby applying the main mathematical and computational techniques.
6. Continue postgraduate studies in a wide range of scientific or technological topics, or adapt to occupational requirements not directly connected to Physics.
7. Develop entrepreneurial skills in topics of interest (such as environmental science, energy sources, etc.) based on the basic knowledge acquired.

General regulations

Grading scale
In the Spanish university system, modules/courses are graded on a scale of 0 to 10 points with the following qualitative equivalence:
0-4,9: «suspenso»; 5-6,9: «aprobado»; 7-8,9: «notable»; 9-10: «sobresaliente». A special mention, «Matrícula de Honor» may be granted to up to 5% of the students in a group provided they have got a «sobresaliente». To pass a module/course is necessary to get at least 5 points.
In cases of recognition of ECTS, professional experience, cultural or sports activities, or student representation no grading will be recorded but, where appropriate, the word «Apto».
