Master-of-Science (M.Sc.) Applied Physics

MScApplPhysbanner.jpg

The Master-of-Science in Applied Physics provides an interdisciplinary study programme at the interface between fundamental physical concepts and resulting modern technologies. Successful students are qualified for independent research in physics and will be prepared for a scientific career in interdisciplinary-oriented scientific research, or industry.

 

Profile

The English-Taught M.Sc. Applied Physics aims to continue and broaden studies begun at Bachelor level. It provides an interdisciplinary study programme at the interface between fundamental physical concepts and resulting modern technologies. Participants will deepen their knowledge in modern physics and are introduced to central methods of physical research, like measuring techniques, methods for data analysis or numerical simulation. In cooperation with associated institutes at the university and with the Fraunhofer Institutes in Freiburg, the Master's programme offers the possibility for a specialisation in a particular area of applied physics, such as optical technologies, biological systems, energy conversion, or interactive and adaptive materials.

In the first year of their studies, participants consolidate their knowledge in advanced theoretical and experimental physics. Advanced Physics and Applied Physics courses can be selected from a range of state-of-the-art topics from a broad spectrum. Students can choose each semester among various term papers, where they learn to give oral presentations and prepare written handouts in English on a specific topic of modern research. In addition, students can select from a variety of elective courses in physics, or from course programmes of other faculties.

During their final one-year Master thesis, students specialize in a particular field by participating in a cutting-edge research project at the Institute of Physics or one of the associated research centres. Successful students are qualified for independent research in physics and will be prepared for a scientific career in research, academia, or industry. Furthermore, they are on the next step towards a PhD, which generally is a prerequisite for leading positions in economy or industry, or for a later academic career.
