Exploring the Basic Laws of Nature and Setting the Basis for Technology
As a natural science, physics not only explores the basic laws governing our world but also provides the foundations for all technical development. Many new developments of great practical importance today are the result of insights and hypotheses in the field of physics.
The degree course in Physics builds upon a good basic knowledge of mathematics and demands a distinct talent for abstract thinking. It provides broad fundamental training which allows graduates to independently acquire further knowledge in their chosen profession.
Graduate physicists often carry out research in industrial or state-owned laboratories. They are involved in such varied tasks as, for example, the testing of atmospheric processes, materials research, the development of technology on an atomic scale, or the use of high-energy rays in medicine. Since physicists are typically found in areas where questions have to be asked, practical experience gained and methods developed, their skills are also valued in many other professional fields.
