Master of Applied Science - Applied Physics (By Research)

RMIT University

The program offers an intensive program of development of the student's specialist knowledge and research ability within a designated field of study. Assessment is on the basis of a thesis submitted by the student on the results of a research project. Research programs are arranged in consultation with staff of the department, often in collaboration with external organisations. Current areas of expertise within the school include: computer simulation of atomic and molecular systems, ion beam and radiation physics in industry and medicine, optical techniques for measurement and sensing applications, environmental, industrial and building acoustics, applied and environmental geophysics, soft condensed matter physics, biophysics and materials science, nano-science and technology, applied physics and instrumentation.

Entry Requirements:

A four year bachelor degree with at least a credit average in the final undergraduate year; or another recognised award deemed to be equivalent in character and standard to a four year undergraduate degree, with at least a credit average in the final undergraduate year. Alternatively applicants may provide evidence of appropriate academic qualifications and experience that satisfies the Dean of the School of Graduate Research or nominee that the applicant has developed knowledge of the field of study or cognate field and the potential for research sufficient to undertake the proposed program.
