Information about the study program
The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer offer an international bachelor's programme in Engineering Physics in order to fill the gap between traditional physics and engineering. Since 1998, students in this programme have acquired a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of mathematics and the natural sciences in combination with application oriented engineering, including the skills needed to further develop modern technologies. In laboratory projects, teams work through real world assignments. Many students complete their final project in a technology oriented business or an external research institute.
More than half of the students in the international Engineering Physics programme come from abroad. Students from many continents work closely together in lectures, practice sessions, and projects. The classes in the first two semesters are offered entirely in English, and later contain an increasing share taught in German. Admission to this English speaking programme requires good English skills.
In the course of study one of three specializations can be chosen:
- Renewable Energies
- Lasers & Optics
- Biomedical Physics & Acoustics
In each of the desciplines a further specialization is possible.
- Normal period: 6 semesters
- University location: Oldenburg and Emden
- Admission regulations: Bachelor / Master
- Consecutive master study program with further specialization
We've asked some students why they chose to study Engineering Physics and what they like about the study program:
"I chose Engineering Physics, because I like the international orientation and the possibilities of specialization."
"I like the connection between theoretical basics and the hands-on experiences and projects."
"The work and contact with international students is fun and you get to know a lot of interesting people and cultures."
