Master of Science in Physics

The first year consists of lectures, seminars, and laboratory classes, whereas the complete second year is exclusively spend on your research project. You will carry out your research thesis in one of the four clusters of the Department of Physics and Materials Science:

  • Magnetic and Multiferroic Materials
  • Soft and Living Matter
  • Photovoltaics and Semiconductor Physics
  • Theory and Materials Modelling
