Polytechnic University of Catalunya

Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain) (Spanish: Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya) is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research in the fields of architecture, science and engineering. Our leadership in research and innovation projects and our network of cutting-edge facilities and equipment are the basis of the UPC’s impressive positions in the main international scientific output rankings. The Department of Physics of the UPC, which is the one that concentrates most of the teachers/researchers involved in the Master of Engineering Physics, has around 100 permanent members, among them 10 full professors. The research in Physics is organized through 10 research groups with a high scientific production. During the last years, around 200 articles in indexed WoS per year were published and 15-20 thesis/yr were defended. The research topics of the different groups, mainly devoted to soft and hard condensed matter, including biological and complex systems, spread from experimental physics, numerical simulations, quantum matter properties and non-equilibrium statistical thermodynamics. These topics are linked together within the Engineering Physics Master’s subjects.

These topics are linked together within the Engineering Physics Master’s subjects and all are thus strongly of interest for the future graduates of the BIOPHAM Master.

Prof. Tamarit is the leader of the group of characterization of materials whose research is devoted to solid-state physics applied to disordered phases and glasses, with especial focus on the structural and dynamics relationship. Applied research concerns the polymorphism and polyamorphism on drugs. He has also a large experience on large facilities as neutron and synchrotron sources.

Professor Boronat is the group leader of the Barcelona Quantum Monte Carlo group. His research is focused in the study of Quantum Many-Body Physics and its application to the study of quantum matter. The quantum research group has made relevant contributions both in methodology and in the application of the devised methods to predict the behavior of different materials deep in the quantum realm. His international leadership has been recently recognized by APS (Fellow) and by the International Committee of the Many-Body Conferences (Feenberg Medal 2017).

Prof. Crespo managed the Doctoral Programme in Aerospace Science and Technology for several years. Later, he was the responsible of the legal authorization of the Degree of Engineering Physics by the Spanish Ministry of Education. Thus, he has a substantial knowledge of academic organization and management. Since 2011 is the head of the Department of Physics of UPC. The administrative tasks of the Master will be performed by the administrative staff of the Department and, according to the University regulations, by the staff of Escola d’Enginyeria de Telecomunicació de Barcelona (https://telecos.upc.edu) which is already providing the administrative support for other Erasmus Mundus Masters.
