The degree program
Modern physics has decisively shaped our view of the world. Physics is the basis of all engineering and natural sciences and many technological developments would be impossible to imagine without an understanding of the physical interrelations. The bachelor's program offers a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of physics and thereby provides access to the current fields of research such as elementary particle physics, astrophysics, quantum optics or solid-state physics. This is complemented by corresponding training in mathematics and the teaching of interdisciplinary qualifications such as writing of scientific texts, technical-scientific programming and presentation skills in German and English. Additionally, students acquire broad knowledge in the practical area of physics as well as in fields of other natural or engineering sciences as an area of special focus.
The courses in the bachelor’s program in Physics include:
- Experimental physics
- Theoretical physics
- Courses from the compulsory elective modules
The compulsory elective section includes other areas of
experimental and theoretical physics, such as astroparticle
physics / cosmology, general relativity, elementary particles,
optics or radiation protection physics. The elective subjects
not from the subject of Physics offer a broad range from the
degree programs in Mathematics, Chemistry, Electrical
Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and
In order to bring school graduates to a comparable level of knowledge in the basics of physics and mathematics, preliminary courses are usually offered before each semester.
Graduates of the bachelor's program in Physics are well prepared for the master’s degree program in Physics and are in demand in many professional fields. The options range from scientific institutions and development departments of industrial companies to the entire IT sector, production and sales to insurance companies, banks and corporate consultancies.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
