This master program is consecutive and regularly based on the Bachelor degree in Technical Physics or related scientific or engineering degrees. Transfer from existing diploma degrees is possible.

Candidates are expected to possess an excellent knowledge of Physics and expertise in Mathematics and Chemistry. Familiarity with the framework of scientific and working methods of physicists is required, with those of engineers is strongly suggested. Based upon this expertise, the Master degree in Technical Physics provides a close connection between teaching and research in the groups of the Institute of Physics and in related engineering departments.
