Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Through participation in numerous tutorial groups and modern, well-equipped practicals the students' skills in analysing, presenting and solving Physics issues are developed at an early stage and continually. Based on this, B.Sc. students from the 5th/6th semester are integrated into research groups and they thus acquire a research-oriented physics education with which the students can independently solve new complex problems. With cohorts of less than 100 people, supervision by the faculty's professors is very good.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The faculty offers an international English-language Master’s programme. Students are supported during stays abroad. There are partnerships with various universities abroad. From the fifth subject semester, courses can be taken in English (option). As soon as the students are integrated into the working groups of the institutes (from approx. the fifth subject semester), they will be part of an international environment. Specialist literature in English is part of everyday life in the Master’s programme. The Master’s graduates are ideally prepared for an international career path.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Georgia Institute of Technology, USA; California State University, East Bay, USA; University of Limerick, Irland; Universidad de Murcia, Spanien
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    On Campus, there are numerous computer rooms and the high-performance computer Cray XC40 (Hazel Hen) as well as the department's own computer room for Physics students. The department offers excellently equipped practicals (beginners, advanced, electronics), often also offered in the research laboratories of the institute. Research and teaching is supported by high-quality workshops specialising in the areas of mechanics, electronics, low-temperature and vacuum technology, as well as glass apparatus construction. Technical staff have qualifications that are far-above average.
  • Support for founders
    Students and academic staff of the University of Stuttgart receive support with setting up a business by the TTI (Technology Transfer Initiative).
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    Students with permanent health impairments receive support in the Department of Physics according to their individual needs and health condition. Depending on the type of impairment, reasonable adjustments such as time extensions for examinations or examinations in a separate room are possible.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    The department is committed to the cultural diversity of Stuttgart. In particular, many staff members working in the Department of Physics have different ethnic (migrant) backgrounds.
  • Other special features
    The researchers at Stuttgart Physics make a contribution to the deeper understanding of natural phenomena and are heavily involved in future new discoveries. In addition to the basic research, they work closely with the Engineering Sciences in order to research the latest discoveries in Physics directly in relation to their future area of use. Physics at Stuttgart also follows a joint path together with companies in the region and with non-university research institutes such as the Stuttgart Fraunhofer or both the Max Planck Institutes.
