Physics (M.Sc. Physik)
Master of Science
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.

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.
