  • Special features regarding teaching
    The compact physics department in Siegen has around 400 students and 16 lecturers with close contact between students and teaching staff. This ensures excellent support, and the lectures develop the range of lectures for the coming semester jointly with students and the student body. The direct integration into working groups while students write their master’s thesis means that the research results are often published in international journals.

Furthermore, the Department of Physics participates in the international Master’s programme ‘Nanoscience and Nanotechnology’.
