Master Physics

Exploring the Basic Laws of Nature and Setting the Basis for Technology

As a natural science, physics not only explores the basic laws governing our world but also provides the foundations for all technical development. Many new developments of great practical importance today are the result of insights and hypotheses in the field of physics.


With its varied range of electives, the Master’s degree program offers students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in one or more areas of physics. Particular value is placed on flexibility and learning through research within a research group. The six-month Master’s thesis project may be conducted in the field of Experimental or Theoretical Physics.
