Introduction to the Program
The Master’s in Physics at ZUST is a two-year program taught in English for international students.
Zhejiang University of Science and Technology (ZUST) is a multi-disciplinary university with emphasis on engineering, incorporating disciplines in science, arts, economics, management, and education. Combining the technical know-how of German Applied Science Universities with its own experience, ZUST explores ways of cultivating international specialists with applied skills.

About the Program
This program is aimed to train high-quality talents with solid fundamental knowledge and professional application skills in the field of Physics. The students will learn frontiers and recent developments in modern physics and acquire experimental skills and basic diagnostic techniques. The graduates will lay a solid foundation in physics and be able to solve practical problems in engineering and technology. Furthermore, students’ stringent attitude toward learning and realistic style in research will be developed. The graduates will have high capabilities in independent scientific research and technology development, a strong sense of innovation, higher literacy, good teamwork spirit, as well as an international outlook.
The major contains the following orientations, namely Applied Optics, Material Physics, Physics of Quantum Information, etc. Applied Optics is very closely related to artificial intelligence (AI), which design machines to do intelligent work that only people can do in the past. For inanimate machines, one of the most important things to do is to consider how to perceive the information of the environment using optical approaches. Materials Physics is the study of organizational structure, material properties, production process, use efficiency and the relationship between them, which covering physics, chemistry, and other fields as well. As for Physics of Quantum Information, we know that quantum computation and information are results of the efforts to generalize classical computation and information to the quantum world. An important step in quantum information theory is the manipulation of quantum information. This requires quantum logic gates, in rough analog to the processing of classical information with digital circuits.
This program takes the form of guidance group system to guide teachers’ personal responsibility and collective training, which does not only attach importance to the guidance of tutors but also make full use of the strength of the academic community. The principle of combination of theory and practice should be carried out in postgraduate training in order to improve the comprehensive quality of graduate students, which is concerned on the training of self-study ability, hands-on ability, expressive ability and writing ability of graduate students.
