Technical Physics master's programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

Physics provide the basis for a number of sciences as well as for innovative technical and industrial developments. The English-language engineering-based master study programme Technical Physics enhances knowledge gained in the bachelor's programme and expands physical-mathematical problem solution skills, enabling students to tackle questions related to research and application. Modules enable students to enhance their technical knowledge in the following areas: Statistical and Computational Physics, Advanced Quantum Mechanics and Atom Physics and Advanced Solid State Physics and Radiation Physics. Additionally, basics in business and entrepreneurship are taught. Students can specialise in three of the following in-depth physical modules: Applied Materials Physics, Computational Condensed Matter Physics, Laboratory Technology and Instrumentation, Microscopy and Nanoanalysis, Modelling of Materials, Nano and Laser Optics, Nanoscience, Quantum Many-Body Physics, Quantum Optics and Molecular Physics, Radiation and Plasma Physics, Semiconductor Devices, Surface Science and Theoretical Solid State Physics. Further in-depth module options are offered in the course of a stay abroad. Due to specialisation in one or several specific areas of physics, connection to the most recent international research activities is guaranteed. Moreover, students deal with interdisciplinary problems such as from the fields of mathematics, chemistry, medicine and environmental systems sciences, and acquire technical English skills on an advanced level.

Expected results

Graduates of the master's programme Technical Physics will have enhanced their knowledge of physics and mathematics. They will be able to apply methods of physics based on experiments, theory and computing, and analyse complex procedures with the help of modern computer simulation processes. Additionally, they will have learned how to think logically and systematically and how to approach physical and technical problem areas.
