The following English language content is for information purposes only. The legally binding content can be found on the corresponding German website.


In the M.Sc. Physics programme, which is taught in English, the focus is on the mathematical-scientific specialisation of the subject. The programme includes in-depth and special lectures as well as courses in the field of experimental and theoretical physics. The following specialisations are possible:

  • Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics;
  • High Energy Density in Matter;
  • or an individual specialisation.

In addition, students can choose interdisciplinary courses from the course catalogue of the Technische Universität Darmstadt to expand their knowledge. A one-year research phase complements this broad spectrum.

Alumni careers

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.
