Master’s programme in physics (MSc)

My broad-based bachelor's studies in physics and the large number of interdisciplinary lectures during my master's studies in Konstanz laid the foundation for my current research at Bosch.

The goal of our master’s programme in physics is to provide specialised training in several physics fields at the highest international level to enable graduates to work independently in industry, research and development careers.

The master’s programme is heavily shaped by the scientific environment at our department. It is divided into two annual phases: in-depth studies and a research stage. During the in-depth studies stage, students acquire the necessary advanced knowledge that enable them to perform independent productive research in physics. Students may also complete a semester abroad during this phase. The in-depth studies prepare our students for working in specific fields. The ensuing research phase is carried out in one of the research groups of the department. Students may specialise in one of the following areas: condensed matter, soft matter, spintronic and quantum information, nanostructures and their preparation, photonic or renewable energies. 

Applicants will need to have earned a qualified bachelor degree in physics or a similar qualification in order to be admitted to the master’s programme in physics. International students without a German higher education entrance qualification are also required to provide proof of sufficient knowledge in the English language.
