Сondensed matter physics is a branch of physics devoted to studies of the structure and properties of substances in a condensed state (solid and liquid, crystalline and amorphous, inanimate matter and biological objects). Almost all fields of human activity (solid state physics, atomic and nuclear physics, biophysics, geophysics, solid state chemistry and biochemistry, geology, metallurgy, medicine, and many others) are either directly related to studies of condensed state matter or they use methods and concepts developed in condensed matter physics.


This program was designed to train highly qualified specialists in the areas of development, analysis, and application of new materials for space, military-industrial complex, medicine, nuclear energy production industry, non-destructive testing in industry and customer service. However, a person possessing fundamental knowledge in physics and the ability to solve differential equations can find a job in a fairly wide area. For example, there are many physicists and mathematicians among scriptwriters and scientific journalists, as well as developers of video games. Thus, this program provides you with really useful skills.
