This English-language master’s programme provides an up-to-date education in physics, with close links to research and industry, and offers a wide range of options for specialisation, for example in nano- and quantum materials, laser spectroscopy, or computer simulations from basic research to targeted materials development.
Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
After completing a bachelor’s programme in physics, if you want to delve deeper into the latest topics being addressed by basic research or technical applications, extend your problem-solving skills in mathematical physics, and investigate research questions and practical applications – then this is the right study programme for you. You need to have completed a subject-relevant first degree.
Technical Physics at the University of Graz
In the master’s programme you will extend your problem-solving skills in mathematical physics, and will investigate research questions and practical applications. Depending on your area of specialisation you might study the development of new types of functional structures and materials, investigate physical processes at atomic scales of length and time, or work on computer simulations.
Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences
The Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences allows you to develop your own research interests further and to perfect your methodological skills. You will work independently to investigate academic questions and contribute to the development of knowledge and innovation in your subject area.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a physicist you will be a universal problem-solver for innovation sectors and will be able to work in science, commerce and industry, either in Austria or abroad. There are also career options in higher education and research institutions, data processing, electronics and electrical engineering, precision mechanics and optics, mechanical and automotive engineering, the healthcare sector, and the public and services sectors.
