  • 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. Building on this, B.Sc. students are involved in research groups from the 5th/6th semester onwards 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.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    University of Adelaide, Australien; University of Toronto, Kanada; Aalto-yliopisto, Finnland; Chalmers tekniska högskola, Schweden; Durham University, Großbritannien
  • 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.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The research focuses are in the areas of Quantum Technologies and Materials, Photonics, Physical Simulation, Soft-Matter Physics, Statistical Physics and Solid Body Physics. Current members of the Stuttgart department have received the most important European research awards and the most important German prize for research. The physicists at Stuttgart are leaders in numerous, also inter-disciplinary, research associations. Together with the local Max-Planck Institute, the Universität Stuttgart forms a major international location for Physics.
  • Support for founders
    Students and research assistants at the University of Stuttgart are supported by the Technology Transfer Initiative when setting up a business.
  • 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.
