Professional GoalsThere are career opportunities in the fields of medical and industrial instrumentation, management and control, maintenance, software development, teaching and researching in Higher Education institutions. Many physics engineers are currently working in big transnational and national groups (TAP, Soporcel, Ford, VV, Revigrés, Roca, SSGP, EDP, Edinfor, Sonae, Cofina, ABB, Siemens, Opel, Kuka). Many others are employed in small and medium sized enterprises (especially in the field of instrumentation and software development), and in some cases as entrepreneurs.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and GradingAs assessment is a pedagogical activity inseparable from the teaching process, its aim is to establish the students' skills and training, their critical sense, ability to recognize and resolve problems, as well as their written and oral presentation skills. Students may only register for exams for classes they are currently registered for under the terms of number 6 of article 4 of the University of Coimbra Pedagogical Policy. The following are examples of assessment items: Oral or written exams, written or practical work, individual and group projects that may require an oral defense, as well as class participation. Assessment for each class may include one or more of the above mentioned items. Grading is based on a scale of 0 to 20 and a grade of 10 is required to pass. Whenever assessment includes more than one item, the final grade is calculated by taking into account the relative weight of each item according to a formula published in the course outline under the terms of number 2 of article 7 of the UC Pedagogical Policy.
