Studying Physics

Physics is one of the leading natural sciences that studies the properties, structure and transformations of matter. The basic sub-disciplines of physics are classical mechanics, relativistic mechanics, quantum mechanics and the quantum field theory. A Master’s degree in physics may open the way to careers in business, IT and engineering.

M.Sc. Physics and Applied Physics

The training of a physicist is not limited to a list of specific subjects, but rather a set of conceptual tools which have united scientific communities for centuries, across a broad spectrum of research activities. Physicists define themselves more by the manner with which they approach a problem, rather than the nature of the problem itself.

School of Basic Sciences
Master Advanced Studies in Nano and Micro Technology (MAS - NMT)

The Master in Micro and Nanotechnologies offers an interdisciplinary education with courses in mechanical and electrical engineering, materials science, as well as physics, biochemistry and computational science. it is Professional Learning Environment that acts as a catalyst for the exponential growth of students’ academic as well as extracurricular abilities.

Laboratory of Applied NanoSciences
M.Sc. Physics

The Fast-Track Master’s program in Physics targets outstanding students with an excellent Bachelor’s diploma seeking an academic career. Successful completion of the program results in a MSc degree in physics. Students in the Fast-Track program can already work on their doctoral thesis and participate in courses of the Graduate School which will shorten the following doctoral studies by about one year.

M.Sc. Physics

At Master's level, this study programme in Physics provides students with advanced courses and starts the process of specialisation. About half of the courses are compulsory and of general interest, the other half consists of more specialised elective courses.

Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät / Faculté des sciences
M.Sc. Physics

As part of the master's degree program, students specialize in one of the fields of work in Physics/Astronomy (Applied Physics, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Experimental High Energy Physics, Climate and Environmental Physics, Theoretical Physics, Space Research and Planetary Sciences).

Philosophisch-naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät
M.Sc. Physics

Studying physics is a good start in science: physics acts as a foundation for the majority of natural sciences. The most important prerequisites for studies are an interest in the fundamental questions of nature, enthusiasm and a little ability. We can offer you a broad basic education in experimental and theoretical physics that also covers practical experience in measurement engineering, experimental methods and training in mathematics and application-oriented information technology.

M.Sc. Physics

We aim for a Master program with a broad selection of courses, covering all major aspects of modern physics. The Master program should encourage breadth, but it should also enable students to specialise if they choose to do so.

Natural Sciences and Mathematics
M.Sc. Physics

The Master in Physics provides advanced training in physics. It includes specialisations in areas such as particle physics, condensed matter physics, theoretical physics, applied physics, astronomy and astrophysics. The programme and work placements give students the opportunity to work with prestigious institutions, including CERN, ESA and NASA.
