Voraussetzungen (entrance requirements)
The general or subject oriented matriculation standard (12 year school) is necessary for the admission. Further certificates have to be acknowledged by the responsible and officially recognized administration.
Applicants whose native language is not English need to submit a B2 - level certificate. Alternatively, a proof of a minimum of 500 hours of English can be provided in form of a transcript of the secondary school certificate or a letter of confirmation from the secondary school.
Inhalt (course content)
Aim of the Bachelor of Science course is to acquire fundamental knowledge and methods in physics such that graduates gain a first overview of the scope of physical insight and physics research as well as the application potential. This is achieved in courses of experimental and theoretical physics, in mathematics and in the laboratory; all these courses aim both at fundamental and application relevant knowledge. The obligatory education is complemented by courses that might be chosen either from a topical physics research area or from a non-physics specialization, e.g. in chemistry, information technology or mathematics and might be further supplemented by a German language course. The study program is completed by a scientific project, the B.Sc. thesis.
An indispensable tool of physics is mathematics. Therefore the participation in a bridge course in mathematics is recommended, but is not compulsory. At the beginning of your studies the learning of essential mathematical techniques is supported in courses on mathematical methods by highlighting these techniques by the application to fundamental physics problems.
In graduating in the B. Sc. Physics you acquire fundamental competences in physics, measurement technology and applied mathematics. This guarantees a head start in the job market that presents rapidly changing challenges to graduates. The unemployment rate for physicists has been low for years. Moreover, the B.Sc. in Physics is the ideal starting point to embark on a M.Sc. program in physics.

Berufsperspektiven (employment possibilities)
The B.Sc. physics program provides the basic knowledge, capabilities and scientific methods for employment in industry and research work in physics or related fields. The graduates have reached a state of knowledge and practice that enables them for further scientific self-education. Traditional fields of physicists' employment are for instance microelectronics, scientific and medical device construction, fine mechanics, engineering, optics, industrial chemical processing and communication technology. Due to the acquirement of analytical research competences and problem solving strategies during their studies, physicists are often sought for even in areas quite unrelated to physics, e.g. in management consultancies. The successful Bachelor in Physics is, however, invited to continue her/his education in the form of Master Studies in Physics or in a related subject.
