Programme overview

Our Bachelor degree program aims to provide students with a broad education in physics and neighboring disciplines. The curriculum has a strong emphasis in math and physics. The career opportunities for physics graduates are as diverse as the field itself. They include: research and development, management or administration in industrial laboratories or technical sales, electronic design or laser instrument research. Physics graduates may also enter a wide variety of graduate programs; for example Condensed Matter & Materials Sciences, Astro- and Particle Physics and Biophysics and Complex systems.

The classes of physics require a good basis of physics, mathematics, chemistry, and at a higher level English. This basis is the "Abiturwissen" of a basic physics course in German high school. Not all students take mathematics up to the end of school. We offer a preparatory course which is intended to bring all freshmen up to the same level. We highly recommend this class to students. It is currently only available in German.
