The Pitaevskii BEC Center offers courses and thesis projects for the Master Degree in Physics of the University of Trento (Laurea Magistrale in Fisica). In particular, we suggest a curriculum (piano di studi) in Quantum Gases and Ultracold Atoms which is aimed at training physicists skilled in the field of many-particle systems governed by quantum mechanics, such as gases and fluids of bosons and fermions, made of atoms, molecules, or other particles, including photons. The curriculum is designed for students interested in undertaking both experimental and theoretical research; in fact, in this area the interplay between theory and experiments is typically strong, which is reflected in the possibility of formulating flexible curricula between the two approaches. Students will learn to use ultracold atoms and, more generally, quantum systems as useful platforms both for the study of fundamental laws of physics and for the realization of devices for applications in the fields of quantum information and quantum simulation, photonics, precision measurements and metrology, and more.

Those who choose this path will be able to join the activities of the Pitaevskii BEC Center for their Thesis. We propose projects for Master Theses in the following areas:

- Experiments with ultracold atoms
- Theory of quantum gases and fluids
- Topological phases of matter
- Quantum optics and theory of photonic systems
- Quantum simulations and quantum computing

All professors and researchers of the Pitaevskii BEC Center can be Thesis advisors.
