  • Special features regarding teaching
    Special profile; Only physics department at a TU that is merged with electrical engineering in one faculty; Teaching staff from electrical engineering (who are physicists) are involved in teaching physics = integration of external perspectives; Special programme "first year together": Content coordinated with electrical engineering / business engineering electrical engineering, switching possible without loss; Very close-knit mentoring programme (direct contacts between professors and students), small group sizes, good personal support including by dedicated student body; Very good conditions for study because everything concentrated on one site
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Participation in international space missions (Rosetta, THEMIS/ARTHEMIS, BepiColombo, Hayabusa-MASCOT, JUICE) in cooperation with DLR, ESA, NASA and JAXA, international cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen, Imperial College in London, the Institute for Space Research in Graz, the University of Berkeley, the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science in Tokyo, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, the Moscow State University, Université Bordeaux, Chung-Ang University, Seoul
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Stockholms Universitet; Université Montpellier 2, Science et Techniques; Universite Bordeaux; Université de Cergy-Pontoise; Nagoya University
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    High-quality facilities in all physics institutes; The equipment of the electrical engineering institute can also be used; Additional measuring and analysis centre (current under construction) as a research building (approximately 30 million euros); Also as a result of close cooperation with PTB and DLR on site, use of technology on site; Various measurement, analysis facilities (also clean rooms, TEM); Modern large FO devices (shared use with electrical engineering and other facilities, especially PTB); Modern workplaces for students with adequate data processing facilities, including an excellent library with access 7 days a week.
  • Support for founders
    Technology transfer office, coaching, networking services and space at every stage of setting up a business
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    Officer for students with disabilities and/or chronic conditions, many possibilities for flexible reasonable adjustments
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    "Vielfalt im Studium - Diversity Mentoring” project
  • Other special features
    Physics at the TU together with Engineering Sciences in a single faculty; High proportion of Physics in all natural 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
