  • Special features regarding teaching
    There is a very wide range of optional required subjects. Very research-oriented elective modules can also be selected in the Bachelor's degree course. Minors can be selected from a wide range, including all humanities and social sciences. There is an early introduction to Theoretical Physics. In the Master's degree course, the specialisation Computational Physics with its own curriculum in the field of computer simulation can be chosen. There is an extremely good cooperation with the departmental student organisation of the Department of Physics.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Göteborgs Universitet, Schweden; Stockholms Universitet, Schweden; Universitetet i Bergen, Norwegen; Universidad de Granada, Spanien; Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spanien; Kobenhavns Universitet, Dänemark; Universite Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), Frankreich; Universita degli Studi di Catania, Italien; University of California, Berkeley, USA; Fudan University, Shanghai
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Already as part of the education, on-site accelerator facilities are used; Physics is involved in a supercomputer (Centre for Scientific Computing); cryostats, development of detector facilities, cryo-electron microscopy, terahertz photonics, Coltrims, high magnetic field lab, molecular beam epitaxy, gamma spectroscopy.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The department is involved in many fields of both applied as well as the basic research. The professors and staff are involved in numerous research associations and cooperation projects. Examples are the joint projects TRR211, TRR288 ELASTO-Q-MAT, BlackHoleCam, Helmholtz Academy HFHF, BMBF ErUM-FSP T01 ALICE, SFB 1319 (ELCH) and SFB 902. Many of these projects are carried out at major research centres (CERN, GSI, FAIR, LNBL, DESY).
  • Support for founders
    The university's own Innovectis GmbH offers extensive support in collaborating with industry, in spin-offs and in patent applications.
