Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) students in Technical Physics work with the most modern research infrastructure (for example, electron microscopy) and are involved in interdisciplinary research projects (for example, in the areas of biomechanics or porous materials). You benefit from cooperation with international research centres, such as CERN or the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics and cooperation with international universities and well-known high-tech companies.
Content and Specialisation Areas
In the master's degree programme Technical Physics, you build on the knowledge you have acquired in the bachelor's degree programme and solve scientific and practical problems. In addition to receiving a basic education, you have several opportunities to gain in-depth knowledge, such as of
- nano- and quantum materials for the development of new functional structures as well as concepts that allow you to develop materials for the future (including the preparation of artificial skin),
- the most modern laser spectroscopy techniques used to investigate physical processes on atomic length and time scales and
- computer simulations for everything from basic research to targeted material development.
Career OptionsTechnical physicists have many career options. They are regarded as universal problem solvers in innovative industries. They work as highly qualified specialists in scientific and technical fields in industry, business and science both here in Austria and abroad.Technical physicists work especially in the following areas:
- Institutes of higher education as well as other educational and research institutes
- Data processing
- Electronics and electrical engineering
- Precision mechanics and optics
- Machinery and vehicle construction
- Healthcare and public services
- Service sector and business services
