Physics has shaped our view of the universe by revealing the basic concepts of space, time and matter. Physics not only lays the foundation for other natural sciences and many engineering disciplines, but is also a fundamental part of modern technology. The programme covers an introduction to classical and modern physics followed by advanced courses in electrodynamics, relativity, quantum physics, statistical physics, and condensed matter physics, to name just a few. Lectures covering both experiments and theory are accompanied by lab courses. We believe in learning by doing and involve students in current research projects of faculty as early as possible.
