Students acquire specialized knowledge in diverse fields of physics, deepen their understanding of scientific methods and strengthen their expertise in theoretical and experimental physics.
If you admire the complexity of things and strive for new cognitive challenges every day, then you will fit right into our community. Our students and graduates have curiosity in their blood and the perpetual question “Why?” in their minds. The research topics inside the department include quantum computing, nanoscience, biological nanomachines, quantum information, and many others.
The English-only coursework prepares students for careers in international teams and interdisciplinary projects in research and development.
Our Master students acquire universally valuable skills such as understanding of complex structures, analytical proficiency, and reasoning. They learn to manage problems in a wide variety of fields of natural science and technology and become flexible and highly desired professionals on the job market.
To complete the Master's program, a student has to collect 120 credit points (CPs). We suggest taking about 30 CPs each semester.
Graduates extend their knowledge of modern physics.
Students have to complete two modules, at least one of them in theoretical physics.
Students choose modules according to their personal interests. Modules from non-physical subjects can also be taken. e.g. German language, Computational Methods. These serve to promote interdisciplinary competence and additional vocational qualifications.
For detailed desciption and valuation of the modules please see Modules Description.
In the second year of the Master program, students have to find a research group and to do an independent research project within that group.
During the research phase, a student is automatically subscribed to the following modules:
The Master’s course would typically follow the following schedule. Students are free to design their schedule individually.
For more details on the structure of the Master's program please see Study Regulations.
