In the Bachelor’s program in Physics, students should acquire the ability to independently classify physical and sometimes also comprehensive problems that require a goal-oriented and logically sound approach on the basis of scientific knowledge and to analyses or solve them using scientific and mathematical methods.
In the 1st to 4th semesters, students acquire solid mathematical and physical knowledge in the fields of classical physics and the first fundamentals of modern physics. You will acquire sound knowledge in the physical core subjects (classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electrodynamics, optics as well as basics of quantum, atomic, molecular and nuclear physics) and the associated mathematical methods. They acquire basic experimental techniques and skills and the ability to apply their physical knowledge to experimental tasks. In addition, the students acquire the basic principles of physics and learn to understand their mathematical formulation and the methods based on it.
The 5th and 6th semesters serve to impart basic knowledge, problem-solving skills and overview knowledge in selected fields of application and specializations in physics (in particular solid state physics and modern optics) and thus to enhance professional qualifications. Choices enable individual specialization and preparation for various advanced Master’s courses. By writing a bachelor thesis, students learn to work on a scientific task under guidance and to document their results in writing and present them orally.
Integrated into the specialist events, basic skills are taught in key qualifications (e. g. time management, learning and working techniques, willingness to cooperate, ability to work in a team, communication skills, rules of good scientific practice) as well as the ability to further develop these qualifications.
