Study Courses

For students who are interested in concentrating their studies on astrophysics we offer courses in the experimental as well as in the theoretical orientation. Besides the regular courses advised for the Physics or Engineering Physics students we recommend the following example course plan or optional lectures.

You are studying Engineering Physics or Physics and are wondering how to receive CP for astrophysics-modules? This site proposes one way of integrating them into your curriculum (Physics, Engineering Physics). 

Bachelor Physics/Engineering Physics/area of professionalization

4. Semester:

  • Astrophysics I (Astrophysik I)

5. Semester:

  • Philosophy and Astrophysics (Philosophie und Astrophysik)
  • Astrophysics II (Astrophysik II)
  • Philosophy and Astrophysics (Philosophie und Astrophysik)
  • Astrophysics experiments in the practical courses of the bachelor’s physics program

6. Semester:

  • Introduction to nuclear and particle physics (Einführung in die Kern- und Teilchenphysik) 
  • Bachelor Thesis  
    • Theoretical Orientation (field theory or general theory of relativity) 
    • Experimental Orientation (minor objects likes meteoroids or comets, robotic observatory…) 
    • Observational Astronomy (also suited for students who do not study Physics or EP if they already took Astrophysics I and II)

If requested, there is the possibility of a Lab-Project to familiarize yourself with basic astronomical observation- and data analysis techniques.

 

Master-Physik/Engineering Physics:

1. Semester:

  • General theory of relativity (Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie) 
  • High-energy radiation physics (Hochenergiestrahlenphysik)
  • Cosmology (Kosmologie)  
  • Analytical and numerical aspects of celestial mechanics (Analytische und numerische Aspekte der Himmelsmechanik) which might be split into two separate lectures 
  • Turbulence and Astrophysics (Turbulenz und Astrophysik) 
  • Space Environment  
  • Astrophysics experiments in the practical courses of the master’s physics program

2. Semester:

  • Advanced observation techniques of astrophysics (Vertiefende Beobachtungstechniken der Astrophysik) 
  • Accretion discs (Akkretionsscheiben) 
  • Black Holes (Schwarze Löcher) 
  • Quantum mechanics II (Quantenmechanik II)
  • Relativistic hydrodynamics


3./4. Semester:

Master’s thesis

  • Theoretical Orientation (field theory or general theory of relativity) 
  • Experimental Orientation (minor objects like meteoroids or comets, robotic observatory…)

Additionally, through the Oldenburg-Bremen cooperation lectures at the University of Bremen can be attended. The courses can be found here. Please select "Physik-Master" (Wahlfach 2.3.1 Astrophysik).
