Programme Contents

The world is becoming ever smaller and ever more complex! Are you interested in influencing materials in the nanocosmos, i.e. at the molecular or atomic level, in order to achieve new and improved properties? Then the Quantum Technology degree programme is just right for you! Our degree programme is aimed at prospective students who are equally enthusiastic about the fundamentals of physics and the potential areas of application. This combination offers a high degree of flexibility for your future career. Thanks to the integrated university and industrial internships in Germany and abroad, great emphasis is placed on the application aspects of the degree programme and students are given the opportunity to establish contacts in industry and cutting-edge research at an early stage.


Learning Objectives

The aim of the programme is to provide students with knowledge in the most important areas of quantum technology and to introduce them to the methods of physical thinking and working as well as to impart an understanding of fundamental physical, chemical and technological terms and laws, sound methodological knowledge and the development of typical thought structures, so that they are able to work on physical and technical problems scientifically and in accordance with the rules of good scientific practice and familiarise themselves with new areas of work with the help of specialist literature, apply physical and technical methods largely independently to specific tasks, develop solutions and evaluate and interpret the results.



  • Description of natural processes under precisely defined, reproducible conditions (experimental observation)
  • Gaining knowledge by creating theoretical models for the quantitative description of observation using the language of mathematics
  • Nature as a whole, from the description of the universe as a whole to the elementary building blocks from which all known matter is constructed
  • From basic research to applied research on specific problems, which very often also originate from non-technical areas

The professional fields and employers essentially depend on the major subject studied.
Due to the broad insight into physics, these fields of activity are also open:

  • Teaching at schools, colleges and universities
  • Patents (law firms and patent offices)
  • Management consultancies, financial service providers, insurance companies and banks
  • Public service

  • good basic knowledge of scientific and mathematical subjects at A-level level
  • ability to abstract
  • analytical thinking
  • load capacity
  • self-employment
  • combination capability
  • perseverance
  • discipline and staying power
  • patience

  • interest in technical content
  • enjoy in solving complex problems
  • scientific curiosity

Starting Study

During Semesters


In the first two semesters of the physics degree programme, numerous tutorials are offered as a continuation of the MINT preliminary course. They offer the opportunity to practise and consolidate what you have learnt using your own supervised exercises. The dates of the tutorials can be found in the course catalogue.


JIM Explainers are students with suitable technical and didactic skills who provide students with assistance and answer questions at eye level. They should help to minimise known beginner problems, primarily when solving the exercises for the basic lectures. to the JIMs
