Studies at the Faculty of Physics
Contrary to common prejudice it is not all grey here but green – and rich in culture. At the same time our region is still characterized by iron, steel, industry and harbor. There was of course a life well before the industrialization: The historical roots of both university cities Duisburg and Essen go back to the early Middle Ages.
What makes the Faculty of Physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen special?
The Faculty of Physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen is a medium-sized, manageable faculty: approx. 140 scientists, among 34 professors, approx. 60 non-scientific staff and - currently - approx. 550 students. This offers great advantages:
- No anonymous mass operations: teachers and students know each other by reputation and name after a while. Professors and staff are open for questions at all times and ready to help where they can.
- Research-near studies: You can establish closer contacts with the research groups after the fourth semester and gradually get involved in a special field.
- Teamwork: The individual operation helps to get in contact with other students. You will certainly find someone to work with. Physics means "teamwork". The earlier you start, the better.
- Bilingualism: The basic lectures in experimental and theoretical physics will be additionally held in English from the third semester onward - directly after the lectures in German.
