The Master's Programme Physics prepares for a highly qualified occupation in industry and in research as well as for the Doctor of Philosophy Programme Physics. It deepens and widens the abilities and the knowledge in the field of physics that have been acquired during the Bachelor's Programme Physics, and mainly deepens the ability for independent scientific working. Within the context of research-oriented teaching, specialisation in four different areas is offered:

  • quantum physics,
  • ion/plasma/applied physics,
  • astrophysics and particle physics as well as
  • computational physics.

These specialisations can be deepened by a wide range of elective offers. The study programme is concluded with a master's thesis, a resarch paper in a relevant field of physics mentioned, which is included in one of the approx. 30 working groups.
