Mathematics and physics represent two fundamental areas of science that are also important foundations for the development of other scientific fields in natural sciences, technology, social sciences and others. Doctoral studies are thus not only important for development in the area of mathematics and physics but also for developments in other related areas. The main objective of the Mathematics and Physics programme is to train highly qualified researchers for independent research in their narrow specializations. The structure of the programme in the organized part guarantees students a sufficient wider knowledge that is indispensable for a young expert involved as an active member of large interdisciplinary research groups.
The doctoral programme in Mathematics and Physics is organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics with cooperation of internationally recognized foreign experts and experts from other faculties of the University of Ljubljana. The programme contains two sub-programmes, Physics and Mathematics, enabling the students to specialize in one of the following scientific areas: Physics, Physics Education, Meteorology, Nuclear physics, Mathematics, and Mathematical Education. The main emphasis of the doctoral study is on research and research-related activities. A selection of courses (module-specific and elective) is also available, allowing students to form individual study programmes consistent with their research interest.
