Short description

Physics explores the operating principles of nature from fundamental concepts to technical applications. Physical principles are the basis of numerous processes in environmental and energy technology, from photovoltaics to fuel cells, electrolysis and batteries. Relevant research topics in these areas are addressed in the solid state physics, surface physics, and plasma physics departments of Kiel Physics. At a time when lifelong learning is in demand, a degree in physics will provide you with an excellent foundation for working in a wide range of careers in the energy and environmental fields. The bachelor's degree in physics provides you with all the scientific fundamentals and methodological skills and allows you to specialize for the first time. As a prerequisite for entering the professional world, the consecutive master's degree program in physics (which builds on the bachelor's degree program in physics) is strongly recommended.
