PhD programme Doctoral Programme in Physics

Content and focus of the degree programme:

This study programme is only available in German.

The main goal of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme in Physics is to make an independent contribution to research through submission of an original piece of scientific work on the highest international level in one of the fields of competence offered at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. This paper is to expand the boundaries of knowledge in the relevant special field and thus to contribute to the progress in the dissertation subject. This goal will be achieved by completing the compulsory modules in the curriculum; in particular the module “Scientific Basics/Core Skills of the Thesis Topic” provides the required skills for research-oriented dealing with the subject matter. The modules “Analysis of Own and External Research Results” and “Core Subject” convey the current state of research. An addition to these skills (e.g. project management, professional presentation of scientific contents) guarantees the module “Generic Skills”. Graduates of the Doctor of Philosophy programme will have a systematic understanding of their research discipline and research methods of this field.
