Study

Students can find the best conditions at the Institute of Physics. Relatively small group sizes ensure excellent support during the Studies.
The modern building at the science campus offers outstanding conditions for an intensive study - close to research.

In addition to traditional Physics courses (Bachelor and Master of Science), the Institute of Physics is also steering the Programme in Environmental Sciences (BSc), an interdisciplinary study of physics and chemistry, ecology, microbiology, geology and mathematics, supplemented by events of laws and economics.

Research

Our research directions institute divisions and research and collaborative research activities:
