Started in the academic year 2006/2007. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 300 (5 years). The Master is accredited by the Ordem dos Engenheiros and the FEANI (European Federation of National Engineering Associations) in order to assign the EUR ING title (European Engineer).
To train Physical Engineer as multidisciplinary professionals possessing knowledge in several areas such as atomic and molecular physics, nuclear physics and plasma, physical interfaces, optics and optoelectronics, sensors, cryogenics and analytical techniques applied to health and cultural heritage, providing them with the following capabilities:
Portuguese students: 697 €/year
Foreign students: 7000 €/year
Students from CPLP countries may apply for a reduction of up to 50% of tuition fees, subject to the following conditions:
a) 1st Registration: students must demonstrate through their academic certificates that their academic performance is in the first quartile of the evaluation scale used in the system of their country or school of origin;
b) Subsequent enrollments (regardless of the year of entry): exclusively for academic merit, that is, approval in all UCs in which the student enrolled in the previous year, totaling 60 ECTS each year.

The Physics Department (DF) is a graduate teaching unit and a post-graduate degree unit (1st, 2nd and 3rd study cycles) and a basic and applied research unit in the fields of Physics, Physics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. It is focused on scientific and technological development, services provision and scientific disclosure. Besides being responsible for the Integrated Masters in Physics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, as well for the doctoral programs in the same areas in Physics and for the doctoral programs "NOVA Instrumentation for Health - NOVA 4H" and "Radiation Biology and Biophysics - Rabbit," the DF ensures the teaching of basic physics to all NOVA School of Science and Technology courses.
This Department started with a small existing nucleus since NOVA School of Science and Technology’s the birth, managed by Prof. Manuel Laranjeira (then Rector of NOVA), the Department of Physics was formally recognized in 1986 and maintained since then a faculty of about 30 people. Its activities in Physics and Physics Engineering were extended in 2000 to include the Biomedical Engineering.
The scientific DF activity takes place mainly in two Research Units, the LIBPhys-UNL and the CEFITEC. The research covers various areas such as nanophysics and energy, atomic and molecular physics, nuclear physics and plasma, physical interfaces, lasers and optoelectronics, sensors, cryogenics, analytical techniques applied to health and cultural heritage, medical instrumentation and medical imaging.More info
