About

The programme in Astro and Particle Physics is an international research-oriented two year Master programme established by the Kepler-Center of the University of Tübingen. The new Master programme connects science from the fields of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology and combines different disciplines in experimental and theoretical physics, astronomy and astrophysics.

Overview

Why choose this programme?

The focus of the master programme Astro and Particle Physics at the University of Tübingen is put on a distinct quantitative approach as usual in physics, along with the acquisition of essential practical skills with respect to problem sets in the field of Astro and Particle Physics.

The Master-Programme is a 2 year consecutive study with a modular structure where in the first year the students have to attend lectures, seminars and labwork consisting of 60 ECTS credit points. In the first term all students have to take two basic introductory modules Astronomy & Astrophysics and Particle Physics consisting of lectures and exercises, which lay the foundations for all students. These are augmented by an obligatory seminar and labwork. In the second term students can choose modules from a variety of different topics. In the second year the students will begin with the scientific work on a research topic of their choice in the areas of the Kepler-Center and finally write their Master Thesis, all together again 60 CP (30 for acquiring research oriented skills and 30 for the Thesis).

This master program is designed to prepare students for a research career in academia or industry by introducing advanced ideas and techniques that are applicable to a wide range of research areas and sectors including academia, industry, and education. Graduates receive a comprehensive education in experimental as well as theoretical physics with a practical section and they are well prepared for the duties in industry and in other research oriented institutions.
