Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, some courses will be held online or with special conditions in hybrid form. Register for the courses in TUMonline to get current information on the specific details (e.g. in a moodle course or via the links in TUMonline).

Non-Physics Courses

Master's students can choose their non-physics courses from other TUM departments and learn from applications of physics to engineering or medicine, as well as further topics in mathematics and natural sciences.

Students enrolled in our physics Master's programs have to pass at least 8 CP (ECTS) of non-physics Master courses. They can choose courses from neighboring departments either in physics applications in engineering or medicine or in mathematics and natural sciences. Students can accumulate the required credits taking several modules with less credits each. Towards the final grade, the non-physics courses are always counted as 8 CP -- even if the sum of the accounted modules exceeds this credit number.

The regulations for the corresponding exams are given by the neighboring departments, the exams are organized in TUMonline.

Open, Dynamic and Steadily Growing Catalog

The catalog of the non-physics courses is an "open catalog" which is dynamic and steadily growing. In case you would like to take a course that does not appear in the catalog, contact the program coordinator at an early stage and facilitate him the relevant module number (the number of the lecture alone is often not sufficient). If the module is approved, it will be included in the catalog. We strongly recommend students to do this well before the exam of the course takes place! A prerequisite for including a module in the catalog (necessary though not sufficient) is that the module belongs to a Master's program of the neighboring department.
