The Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Israel’s leading institute for science, technology, engineering and applied research has invited international students to apply for its MSc and PhD degrees in the field of physics.
The MSc degree includes a series of required courses and original research leading to a written thesis. The first two semesters of the degree will be based on coursework, during which students find a research advisor to curate a thesis plan. In the second year, students take up research under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
Technion’s PhD degree focuses on helping students evolve into experts in their chosen fields and develop advanced knowledge and skills to become individual researchers. It would require students to perform original research in the research group under a professor’s guidance.
