BA Minor Physics 60 ECTS

Bachelor Minor Physics (60 ECTS)

Career Goals and Fields of Activity

Physics graduates have a wide range of employment opportunities, as their ability to analyse and solve complex problems enables them to familiarise themselves very quickly with less familiar topics. Studying physics with a Master's degree therefore offers a wide range of opportunities. Thanks to their interdisciplinary training, graduates are highly versatile and have excellent and secure career opportunities in a wide range of sectors, such as

  • in industrial research and development centres
  • in teaching at schools, colleges and universities
  • as an IT expert both in companies and as a freelancer
  • in the patent system (law firms and patent offices)in the patent system (law firms and patent offices)
  • at management consultancies, financial service providers, insurance companies and banks
  • in the public sector

Despite changing economic conditions, the opportunities on the labour market for graduates in physics are very good and have remained so for a long time.

Qualification Goals

After successfully completing the programme, graduates have the following skills:

  • Graduates have a capacity for abstraction, analytical thinking and the ability to structure complex interrelationships.
  • Graduates understand the basics and interrelationships of physics.
  • Graduates have a basic knowledge of physics and an insight into the theoretical and experimental methods used to gain new insights.
  • Graduates have basic knowledge of the fundamental areas of physics as well as in-depth knowledge in at least one area.
  • Graduates are able to familiarise themselves with new areas of work with the help of specialist literature, develop solutions and interpret and evaluate the results.
