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 provides you with an excellent foundation for working in a wide range of professional fields in the energy and environment sectors. The master's degree in physics provides in-depth specialist knowledge and the ability to carry out critical, independent scientific work in current research areas.
