Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will know how to solve physics and mathematical problems in the fields of Physics, Astrophysics, Mathematics, and Engineering. Moreover, they will be able to plan their solution, based on the tools, resources, and time available. Graduates will know how to formulate and develop advanced physics and mathematical rationales and deepen their knowledge of Physics, Astrophysics, and Mathematics. They will be capable of making a critical analysis with a view to obtaining, interpreting, and synthesising results as well as complex new ideas in the fields of Physics, Astrophysics, Mathematics, and Biomathematics. Finally, graduates will be capable of applying advanced knowledge of mathematics and numerical or computational methods to problems in Physics, Astrophysics, and Biology as well as of devising and developing mathematical models in Science, Biology, and Engineering.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.

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».
