The study program builds on a bachelor in physics or a comparable scientific degree. The objective of the Master's program is to provide specialized training in several sub-subjects of physics at the highest level. Students are encouraged to adopt autonomous and goal-oriented ways of learning and working. The program is divided into two one-year sections:
• Specialization phase (1st and 2nd semester) • Research phase (3rd and 4th semester)
The professional specialization phase with lectures, exercises and internships serves to acquire the advanced knowledge necessary for independent productive work in physics. With special training in several sub-subjects of physics, the graduates can prepare themselves specifically for certain future fields of activity. The research phase includes seminars and a research project.
Physicists are not only sought in publicly funded or industrial laboratories or research centers, but also in engineering occupations or other areas outside physics.
Advanced experimental physics
Advanced theoretical physics
In the subject-specific part, two elective physical subjects have to be chosen from following areas:
Computational materials science
In addition, science and engineering-oriented subjects can be taken as elective courses.
