The degree program
This two-year program is a research-oriented degree program in the Department of Physics. It ends with the academic degree of Master of Science (MSc).
The program offers specializations in the research areas of the department, in particular on
- Experimental solid state physics
- Quantum information theory and foundations of quantum mechanics
- Experimental quantum optics and nano-optics
- Theoretical particle physics
- Experimental particle and astroparticle physics
In the first year, students take several courses which ensure a solid background in general physics and prepare them for actual research in their chosen specializations. In the second year, students carry out research and write their master thesis as a member of one of the research groups of the physics department.
1) Qualified bachelor's degree from a university or a university of applied sciences
- a) in the subject of physics
- b) in a natural-sciences subject (Bachelor of Science)
- c) as a Diplom-PhysikingenieurIn
2) A qualified degree equivalent to the Bachelor's degree according to item 1).
3) A Bachelor's degree in the subject of physics is deemed qualified if acquired at a university in the scope of application of the German Civil Code and completed at least with the grade satisfactory, or if equivalent to such a degree. Equivalence is determined by the examination board for the master's degree program physics.
4) Applicants with qualifications from a foreign institution have to provide documentation of a sufficient command of the German or English language. Details are given in the examination regulation.
The examination regulations relevant at the time shall apply.

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals
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 regulations and detailed information for each module can be found in the module manuals (e.g. requirements for taking a written exam or information on the content of the modules/courses, ...) and are part of the Examination regulations (PO).
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.
