Research-oriented Physics
Student im Master Physik in der Laborhalle Panta Rhei
Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Enrollment is not possible for this course currently.


The Master's degree in physics teaches the key skills for a future career as a physicist in a research-intensive and closely mentored study programme. The Master's programme is divided into two semesters, one an advanced studies phase and the other a research phase.

The modules in the advanced phase are generically structured in applied, experimental and theoretical subject areas and content is based on the research priorities of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry and its partner institutions. The strong networking with non-university research institutes such as the Fraunhofer Institute for Polymer Materials and Composites in Teltow, the DESY Zeuthen, the Institute for Crystal Growth Berlin and the IHP Frankfurt Oder, allows, during the advanced studies phase, for a focus across a broad spectrum of research directions and direct contact with the relevant working groups .

The main part of the research phase is the preparation of the thesis. Here students will approach the current state of research in a branch of physics and demonstrate their capacity for independent research, also with the aim of a subsequent doctorate.
