Who we are

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Physics of the University of Genoa.

Bachelor and Master programs

As researchers and teachers we are committed to the training of the future generations of physicists. We offer two bachelor programs in Physics and in Material Science (“Laurea”), and a Master Program in Physics (“Laurea Magistrale”). We offer as well a PhD program in Physics (“Dottorato di Ricerca”).

After graduation, at work!

Almost all graduate students in Physics at DIFI find a job shortly after their Master degree. Our courses pave the way to many different careers, such as teaching, industry, scientific research, and many professions. We guide our students in choosing their future career, also by means of internship programs in industry before and after graduation.

Scientific research

Teachers and researchers of our Department work at the frontiers of knowledge. Our main research fields are particle and astroparticle physics, condensed matter physics and nanotechnology, biophysics, nanomedicine, and environmental physics.
