Programme of Physics of Molecules and Materials
We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.
In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
The master specialisation Physics of Molecules and Materials comprises of
|A.||Mandatory courses - Physics and Astronomy, Physics of Molecules and Materials||18 EC|
|B.||Elective courses - Physics and Astronomy||24 EC|
|C.||Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy||60 EC|
|D.||Professional Preparation||1 EC|
|F.||Free electives||14 EC|
Note: In order to create a coherent programme that prepares you for a Master's thesis, contact the specialisation coordinator Steffen Wiedmann.
A. Mandatory Programme (18 EC)
|Quarter 1||Quarter 2|
|NWI-NM001B Electrodynamics (3 EC)|
|NWI-NM009B Solid State Physics (6 EC)|
|NWI-NM089B Molecular Physics (6 EC)|
|NWI-NM113 Student Seminar Physics of Molecules and Materials (3 EC)|
B. Elective courses - Physics and Astronomy (24 EC)
Elective courses should be chosen in consultation with the prospective supervisor or the coordinator of the Master specialisation. An overview of the elective courses offered in the Physics of Molecules and Materials specialisation can be found here. However, you are not restricted to this selection of Physics and Astronomy courses. Part of your elective course programme (9-15 EC) can take the form of a synergy track in Computational and Data Science.
The Educational tour can also be used as an elective course within your Master's.
C. Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy (60 EC)
D. Professional Preparation (1 EC)
E. Philosophy course (3 EC)
F. Free electives (14 EC)
Free electives can be chosen from other master specialisations or programmes, not necessarily within Physics and Astronomy. You can also consider courses from the societal specialisations.
