Special features regarding teachingSpecial profile; only physics together with electrical engineering in one faculty at one TU; lecturers from electrical engineering ( who are physicists) involved in teaching physics = integration of external perspectives; very close mentoring programme (direct contact between professors and students), small group sizes, good personal support also through committed student council; very good study conditions due to concentration at one location.
Exchange universities for stay abroadsStockholms Universitet; Université Montpellier 2, Science et Techniques; Universite Bordeaux; Université de Cergy-Pontoise; Nagoya University
Special features regarding the equipmentHigh-quality equipment in all physics institutes; also shared use of the equipment of the institutes of electrical engineering (ET); new research building "LENA" (Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology) as a measurement and analysis centre; through close cooperation with PTB and DLR on site shared use of the technology on site; various measurement & analysis equipment (also clean rooms, TEM); modern FO large-scale equipment (also shared use from ET and other facilities esp. PTB); modern student workstations with good computer facilities, including very good library with 24/7 access, new physics building in planning.
Special features regarding research activitiesScientific key areas enable close cooperation with the PTB and DLR in joint projects (cf. ROSETTA), resulting in excellent opportunities e.g. in metrology projects; close integration with Electrical and Electronic Engineering (e.g. Nanosystems), resulting in excellent opportunities for doctoral candidates (also in graduate colleges); close collaboration with Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Option for applied research with industry in the region (example, VW); close links, also transregionally (HZB Berlin, IFW Dresden, PSI Switzerland), key areas in Extraterrestrial Physics.
Support for foundersTechnology transfer office, coaching, networking opportunities and space at every stage of start-up.
Other special featuresPhysics at the TU together with the Engineering Sciences in one faculty; high proportion of Physics in all Sciences and Engineering; this ensures strong links between teaching and research. Placing of all Physics institutes in a Physics centre; attractive research institutions with the opportunity to cooperate directly with the Engineering Sciences; extremely committed departmental student organisation and therefore very good study atmosphere (lecturers/students); special feature of the region with VW PTB, DLR, (MPG in the vicinity), resulting in numerous cooperation possibilities
