The Master of Science in Applied and Engineering Physics is a two year full time programme with 120 CP in total. The programme is consecutive to the Physics Bachelor programme and leads to actual research contents.
During first year students choose from the wide catalogue of specialty modules, according to their interests. The catalogue consists of chosen topics from experimental to theoretical Physics and represents the scientific profile of the Physics-Department at TUM. The research areas cover Condensed matter (KM), Particle-, Nuclear- and Astrophysics (KTA) and Biophysics (BIO). The applied fields in these areas compose the contents for the study programme Applied and Engineering Physics (AEP). Examples of the catalogue are listed at the end of the course description. Four elective modules (worth 20 CP) have to be chosen from the focus AEP, two more elective courses (10 CP) from the complementary fields.
The programme is consolidated by the mandatory course in Advanced Theoretical Physics and completes hereby the broad profile and professional focus of the physics course. Additional students have to pass a Proseminar and the advanced laboratory. These are thematically assigned to the main focus and will be credited as course achievements.
