• The Master of Physics is a formation of the Faculty of Physics and Engineering.
  • The first year is a common year.
  • Since specialization is based on M2, all major areas of contemporary fundamental physics are accessible to Master students. In particular, the Master of Physics offers a wide variety of internationally recognized cursus.
  • The Master of Physics also offers the possibility of preparing l’agrégation de Physique et Chimie (option Physique). The students concerned can thus prepare this competition while following a reinforced curriculum leading to the professions of research.
  • The Master of Physics serves as a support for the last two years of the Magistère de Physique Fondamentale.
  • In the second year (M1), Master of Physics students are natural candidates at the 3 Graduate Programs QMat, HiFunMat and IRMIA++, with the possibility to access grant at the M1 level:
        • EUR QMat, Quantum Science and Nanomaterials University Research Institute: The continuing miniaturization and integration of information technologies requires a better understanding and control of the quantum nature of matter that becomes dominant at the (sub) nm scale (read more).
        • HiFunMat, Hierarchical and Functional Materials: To meet the strong demand in the industry for people with a solid background in materials science, students are offered to obtain supplementary training on hierarchical and functional materials (read more). Dowload the flyer here. To apply to HiFunMat: application.
        • IRMIA++, Mathematics in interaction with Computer Science and Physics: this program comes in addition to the courses offered by 9 associated Master tracks of the mathematics, computer science and physics departments of the University of Strasbourg. The Master students will gain a broader view of the research activity as well as specific skills for conducting interdisciplinary collaborations. This program is certified by a university diploma (DU – Diplôme d’Université) of the University of Strasbourg, called “Mathematics and applications: research and interactions”.


Agrégation de Physique-Chimie, Option Physique

5 Juillet 2023,

5 étudiants de la préparation à l’agrégation de Strasbourg sont admis à l’Agrégation (sur 6 admissible). Tous les étudiants qui passaient le CAPES sont admis.

Movies of the Cell Physics Master students 2020 are online on the official website of Science Sketches (Ising model for biological physics, ecological diversity – drift and competition, How does the brain get its folds?, and more): sciencesketches.org/videos youtube.com/channel/UCXhAC

Visit of synchrotron SOLEIL and APOLLON

On Tuesday March 21, 2023, students of the Master of Physics visited the SOLEIL synchrotron (SOLEIL) and the intenser LASER source (APOLLON). After having a general presentation of presentation of the synchrotron, and a presentation by a former student of the Master, now a line scientist, they were able to visit 4 beamlines: CASSIOPEE, HERMES, GALAXIES and PSICHE.

French Physicists Tournament (FPT 2023)

16 February 2023

The team of students of the Faculty of Physics & Engineering, composed of 14 students of the Master of Physics (and 2 team-leaders) finished 8th (over 10 teams).

Visite du LHC

Julien Masseron, ancien étudiant du Master de Physique de Strasbourg (L3 Physique, M1 Physique et M2 PRIDI) a obtenu le prix Pépite ETENA 2020 pour SMARTIUM, un projet de création d’entreprise spécialisée en optimisation de la mesure des rayonnements ionisants. Cette création d’entreprise fait suite au projet de maturation “Mercure”, soutenu par la SATT Conectus, qui visait à développer une solution innovante de cartographie par drone de la radioactivité environnementale. Les équipes pédagogique de la Licence et du Master de Physique le félicitent très sincèrement pour ce beau projet.
