On the one hand, the programme is rather strictly organised, and students are encouraged to reach their goals in the scheduled period of time. For instance, lectures are supported by supervised work in small groups in the tutorials. On the other hand, personal initiative and individual work are encouraged through long-term projects in the laboratory.
Engineering Physics is offered by the University Oldenburg and the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer. During the first and second years, most lectures will be held in Oldenburg. There is one exception: the laboratory projects will take place partly in Emden. You will go to Emden once a week. You will receive a "Semesterticket" when you enrol which allows you to use public transport free of charge.
Individual part-time studies are possible.
Study abroad unit(s)
It is possible to spend one or two semesters of studies at a partner university outside Germany.
Mandatory internship in a company or research institution within the subject area of physics/engineering/individual subject of specialisation
Forms of assessment
- Written or oral exams after the lecture period, controlled lab reports, written thesis to be defended
- 180 ECTS for the complete programme
Students are trained to develop and apply modern technology in medium- and large-sized companies. Mastering the unique blend of physics, mathematics and engineering allows students to find innovative solutions for old and new problems in their careers. Experience in self-contained laboratory work during their studies will allow graduates to implement solutions. The programme is rounded off by an introduction to a subject of specialisation, namely, Laser & Optics, Biomedical Physics & Acoustics or Renewable Energies.
