The purpose of graduate studies in physics is to shape outstanding students into independent researchers, ready to take leadership roles in academia and industry. In this, the graduate program is significantly and essentially different from undergraduate studies, which are designed to give a solid basis for success in future scientific endeavors. Graduate school builds on this, first with advanced coursework, and then, most critically, with research directed by a faculty member in one of the active research frontiers of physical science. It is our mission and desire to convey the excitement and beauty of world-class creative research to our graduate students, and it is our goal that many will find their way into academia or become visionary leaders of industry.
The graduate school experience at the Technion Physics Department is unique. The department is well known not only for its academic achievements and international collaborations, but also for its friendly and open atmosphere. The rich intellectual environment is augmented by frequent visits by well-known scientists from all over the world, many of whom give distinguished lecture series, in all branches of physics. This international exposure, as well as travel to conferences abroad, provides students with an opportunity to expand their intellectual horizons, and helps them to create an essential network of international connections.
