Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks The lecture series Material Science (MS1 & MS2) address all aspects of this topic starting from the basic principles in chemistry and physics. This is followed by a characterization of materials properties and the selection of materials from the engineering point of view. Finally, the application of a wide range of engineering materials is described dedicated to be used as structures or products. Following the first course, Material Science II is deepening the physical properties of materials. Next the mechanical properties are revealed on the component and structure level - exhibit a transition from the micro to the meso and macro level including a basic understanding of fracture mechanics and material testing. The course MS2 includes in detail: 3. Physical properties of materials (thermal and optical properties; electron theory, electrical and magnetic properties) 4. Properties in regard to engineering applications. Fracture mechanics and material testing. 5. Engineering materials and their properties on the structure and component level (metals, ceramics, materials used in electronic components, polymers, construction materials, composites and fiber reinforced materials, selection of materials in regard to economical and ecological aspects).

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
