Standard length of study: 4 semesters
Language: German


Course Profile

The master's programme of Physical Engineering prepares you for a career in research and development departments of companies and other entities due to the mathematical and physical orientation of the programme. The strong emphasis on the mathematical and physical principles and the application of analytical, numerical and experimental methods to concrete, practice-oriented engineering tasks enable you to flexibly adapt to new problems and to look at them in a holistic way. In various study projects, you will apply the theoretical methods in practice.


Course Content

Team-oriented and interdisciplinary work has a high priority during the course of study. Additionally, you can freely choose from a large number of modules and boost your personal training profile in particular by the choice of two topics.

You can choose from the following topics:

  • Numeric and Simulation
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Mechatronics
  • Solid Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Technical Acoustics


Due to the combination of basic knowledge, methods, skills and interdisciplinary work, graduates are perfectly prepared for the demands in research and development. The application areas include all industries where innovative ideas and the latest scientific insights are obtained and translated into products and services that include:
