The M.Sc. program Physics International is a two-year program with the first year focusing on a lecture-, seminar- and lab-course program to deepen and widen the knowledge of students based on their experience from B.Sc.- level studies. In the second year, students are working on a topical project in physics integrated in a faculty research team under the supervision of a professor or senior scientist, leading to a master thesis. The program is compatible with the Bologna process of the European Higher Education Area. The students will take courses in experimental and theoretical physics, an advanced seminar and an advanced lab course. There is a wide selection of elective courses including many courses on current research topics. These are given by active researchers in the respective fields to help students prepare for their own research. In this program students are advised to contact potential supervisors of their master thesis early for advice on which lectures are best suited for preparing them for their thesis topic of choice.
