The degree program
Modern physic has decisively characterised our view of the world. Physics is the basis of all engineering and natural sciences and many technology developments are impossible to imagine without understanding the physical interrelations. The bachelor's degree program offers a comprehensive overview of the elements and principles of physics and thereby open up access to the current research facilities such as elementary particle physics, astrophysics, quantum optics or solid-state physics. Additionally, there is the corresponding training in mathematics and teaching of interdisciplinary qualifications such as writing of scientific texts, technically-scientific programming and lecture competence in German and English. Additionally, students acquire wire-spread knowledge in the practice-related area of physics and focusing on areas of other natural sciences and areas of engineering.
The courses in the Bachelor's degree in Physics include:
- Experimental physics
- Theoretical physics
- Offer from the required modules
Mandatory courses include other areas of experimental and theoretical physics, such as astroparticle physics / cosmology, general relativity, elementary particles, optics or radiation protection physics. The non-physical elective modules offer a broad range from the study programs in mathematics, chemistry, electrical engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering and economics. In order to bring school graduates to an equivalent state of knowledge in physical and mathematical elements and principles, preliminary courses are usually offered before each semester.
Graduates of the Bachelor's degree program in Physics are well prepared for the Master's Program in Physics and are in demand in many occupational fields. The options go from scientific facilities and development departments of industrial companies, across the entire IT area, production and sales, to insurances, banks and corporate consultancies.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
