Master of Science; tuition language: German

Physik, M.Sc.


The M.Sc. Physics focuses on the mathematical and natural sciences. It comprises advanced and specialised lectures, courses from the areas of experimental and theoretical physics and from a supplemental subject outside of physics, typically from mathematics, natural sciences or engineering sciences. Students can choose interdisciplinary courses from the complete Technical University of Darmstadt course catalogue to increase the scope of the programme. A one-year research phase complements this broad spectrum.

Programme start
Requirements for admission to the Master’s Degree programme consist of a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics or an equivalent degree. Admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. Specific degree entrance requirements may be found here and in the competences description.
Internship programme-internal internship (see Semester Course Schedule)
Special Features Students will be expected to be proficient in English as physics textbooks are often written in English and original literature is almost exclusively so.
Costs and budget
Preparatory courses for international students
Double Degree Programme at a partner university for this course
Part-time studies

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the Technical University of Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at Technical University of Darmstadt

The spectrum of careers for graduates of Physics continues to expand not only as a result of technical progress, but also new environmental issues. Today, physicists work in basic and industrial research, in consultancy firms and in industry, in banking, politics, management and academia. Innovative problem-solving skills are needed and cutting-edge issues are investigated in various fields. In order to meet these challenges, graduates require sufficiently broad foundations in experimental and theoretical physics, including the necessary mathematical knowledge. A current example of how quickly results from physics research are technically implemented can be seen in solid state technology and optical electronics in their role as the foundation of communications and data technology. Other examples include laser physics, which serves as the foundation for modern optics and materials processing and medical applications.
