Engineering Physics brings about the vision that economic, human and social progress may be achieved by understanding and manipulating matter, not only at macroscopic scale, but also at scales from nanotechnology to the remote and unknown parts of the Universe. An engineering physicist is challenged daily to participate in scientific development in order to extend the limits of science, by acquiring and applying new knowledge in the frontier between science, engineering and technology.
In its tradition of high quality, keeping relevant, up to date and international, to respond to contemporary societal challenges, IST launched LEFT in 1984/85. The curriculum of the course is based on the recognition that scientific, technological, economic, human and social progress can be achieved through:
