Engineering Physics - Master's Programme

Orientation and Goals

This master's programme is offered jointly by the University of Oldenburg and the University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule) Emden/Leer, and is intended to fill the gap between traditional physics and engineering. Students gain a comprehensive understanding in selected areas of physics. Additionally, the application of physics and engineering is elaborated upon in a focal area that can be chosen from the areas of "Laser & Optics", "Biomedical Physics", "Acoustics" and "Renewable Energies". Furthermore, this programme is international in its orientation, and students from many continents work closely together in lectures, practice sessions, and projects.

Study Design and Contents

Students are qualified for employment in research and industry through an introduction to modern technologies. In the integrated research project, students gain valuable experience in a research centre or in a company. Modules amounting to 51 credit points focus on the natural sciences and engineering, 33 credit points in the specialisation area including an internship, 6 credit points are reserved for management and the master's thesis is worth 30 credit points.

Reasons for Studying

Our profile:
- physics combined with engineering
- mathematics lectures dealing with mathematical methods for physics and engineering
- theoretical physics dealing with application situations
- specialisation area to be freely chosen from biomedical physics, lasers and optics, materials science, renewable energies, acoustics
- excellent future prospects
- international students and international environment.
