  • Special features regarding teaching
    The courses of study at the Department of Physical Engineering are based on the qualification requirements set by industry. Students receive a broad basic education in Science and Technology followed by a degree course-specific specialisation that builds on this. Current links to business are ensured by the use of external assistant professors and externally funded projects. The academic success of students is increased through intensive exercises, work placements, tutorials and homework including monitoring. There is high practical relevance in the form of laboratory practicals and in the practical phase.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The Department of Physics Engineering has international partners in Australia, Brazil, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA. The contacts are used by students for study abroad during the practical phase and for the degree thesis. In addition, there is a cooperation agreement with the UNSW Canberra for cooperative doctorates.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Due to the high level of third-party funding, the department has ultra-modern laboratory equipment which is also available to students in teaching. The laboratory equipment is continually expanded and improved through other quality improvement funding. Students can carry out projects of their own in the MakerSpace of the Steinfurt Campus under the guidance of a research assistant.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The research in the department of Physical and Instrumental Engineering is particularly prominent and diverse, develops smart solutions for industry and results in one of the highest levels of third-party funding at the FH Münster every year (FH Münster is one universities of applied sciences in Germany with the most third-party funding), the most third-party funding of all departments of Physical and Instrumental Engineering at universities of applied sciences and thus in state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. Due to the very close integration of teaching and research, current developments and the most up-to-date procedures in industry are incorporated into teaching and work placements.
  • Other special features
    Graduates of the programme in physical engineering are in high demand in the labour market. Our graduates have job prospects in the fields of innovative technologies, in industry, research, marketing and distribution.
