Bachelor Physics

Bachelor Physics

The general admission requirement for the Bachelor's program is the certificate of higher education entrance qualification (general or relevant subject-linked higher education entrance qualification).

The bachelor's degree program provides a broad education in physics, thereby laying the foundation for a career in industry and business and enabling students to pursue a master's degree in physics. The Bachelor's program includes an introduction to experimental physics, including experimental practical courses, to theoretical physics and to the fundamentals of mathematics. Furthermore, the education takes place in a non-physical elective subject (mathematics, chemistry, computer science, engineering, philosophy, economics or history of science).

The study program is divided into modules, which comprise one or more courses (see BA module overview). Successful participation in a module is evidenced by examinations. The grades of the module examinations are included in the final grade (weighted according to the scope of the module). There is no final examination. The type of examination (oral, written) is specified in the module descriptions or announced at the beginning of the module. Further details are regulated by the BA examination regulations.

The Bachelor's program has a standard period of study of six semesters and begins in the winter or summer semester. A total of 180 credit points according to ECTS must be successfully completed in the course of study.
The detailed module description can be found in the Bachelor Module Handbook. Bachelor Module Handbook.

Before starting the studies, it is highly recommended to attend the preliminary course in mathematics, which teaches the mathematical techniques that are already needed at the beginning of the physics studies. Of course, the mathematical knowledge will be extended considerably during the course of study, as can be seen from the BA curriculum.

The purpose of mentoring is to make students aware of the offers for professional and general advice in the initial phase of their studies and to offer them the opportunity to give feedback in case of difficulties and to exchange experiences with other students. Further information is available on the mentoring form.

To plan a semester abroad, please contact the ERASMUS office. For internal consultation you can also contact Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Kampert. The selection of the appropriate courses and the necessary clarifications can take some time. You can only start your semester abroad after you have completed the Learning Agreement. After your return, the final assessment and crediting will be done by the examination board.

The contact person for questions is the person responsible for the module "Industrial Internship" (IP6 / IP9), Prof. Dr. D. Lützenkirchen-Hecht.
