Special features regarding teachingThe 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.

Master's course can be completed both in German and in English. There is a programme especially for international Master students in physics, which is supervised by its own coordinator. Furthermore, the Department of Physics participates in the international Master’s programme ‘Nanoscience and Nanotechnology’.

The department is also is also represented in accelerator physics laboratories (Helmholtz Centre Berlin), elementary particle physics (CERN, Genf) and X-ray physics (DESY, Hamburg). The department also has an observatory.
