Program Details

Leipzig University was founded in 1409 and is one of Germany’s leading universities when it comes to top-class research and medical expertise. It offers a unique variety of subjects, from the humanities and social sciences to the natural and life sciences.

The Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences offers Bachelor’s course that constitutes a traditional university education in physics. The aim of the Bachelor of Science course is to acquire fundamental knowledge and methods in physics such that graduates gain a first overview of the scope of physical insight and physics research as well as the application potential.

An indispensable tool of physics is mathematics. Therefore the participation in a bridge course in mathematics is recommended but is not compulsory. At the beginning of your studies, the learning of essential mathematical techniques is supported in courses on mathematical methods by highlighting these techniques by the application to fundamental physics problems.

The course comprises lectures and exercises in experimental and theoretical physics and in mathematics, as well as laboratory courses that will provide a broad and applicable knowledge in physics and mathematics: Experimental Physics with Laboratory Courses (Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat, Electricity, Magnetism, Optics, Atomic Physics, Molecular Physics, Soft Matter and Solid State Physics); Advanced Physics Laboratory Course; Mathematics (Linear Algebra, Advanced Differential and Integral Calculus, Sequences and Series, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations); Theoretical Physics (Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Special Relativity, Thermodynamics, Introductory Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Physics); Numerical Mathematics; Bachelor’s thesis. Electives include a choice of German language courses or Chemistry and Computational Software. Further specialisation is possible by choosing between Advanced Mathematics or specific Physics courses in preparation for the Bachelor’s thesis (including Astrophysics, Introduction to Computational Physics, Semiconductor Physics, Photonics and Superconductivity). A compulsory, project-oriented internship concludes the curriculum.
