An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.
Physics is the science that studies the relationships between all physical objects. The Science of Physics is the study of the very big as well as the study of the very small. Physics concerns itself with the mathematical interpretation of these worlds. Studying physics at either an undergraduate level and later at a postgraduate level will provide you with long-lasting tools to face analytical challenges in your professional life. Although a main pathway in physics is to engage in research and technology development, physicists are highly-sought after in several industries as their power to analyse and understand patterns and complex systems are unrivalled by other sciences.

The Master‘s degree programme in Physics provides research-oriented training in highly successful research areas at the Department of Physics in Erlangen. It is a four-semester Master‘s degree programme, comprising two semesters of courses and one-year research part, which is completed with the Master’s thesis. The high-level degree programme deepens and expands the knowledge and skills developed in a Bachelor’s degree programme. A wide range of specialised lectures is offered to prepare for research work in the Master’s thesis.

Based on the chemical and physical knowledge of the bachelor program a more comprehensive understanding of the relations between composition and structure of the material
The master course "Chemistry and Physics of Functional Materials" enables graduates of the bachelor program "Applied Natural Sciences" and similar study courses of other faculties at German and international universities to work in research in the fields of chemistry, physics, and material sciences. The program addresses students with interest in doing research with functional materials. Based on the chemical and physical knowledge of the bachelor program a more comprehensive understanding of the relations between composition and structure of the materials on the one hand and their chemical and physical characteristics, on the other hand, is given. The master program provides the qualifications required for a consequent Ph.D. program or enables the graduates to take up responsible positions in research and development in industry or research institutes....

The master’s programme Physics at the University of Bayreuth encourages early involvement in research. The programme fosters an array of abilities and skills, in particular, an advanced scientific understanding of the subject matter at high international standards, the ability to carry out scientific work independently, as well as additional key skills, such as project management, teamwork, and presenting complicated matters clearly.
Achieving Success with Creativity
The study of physics at a high academic level requires plenty of space for creativity. For this reason, the master’s programme Physics at the University of Bayreuth gives students a great deal of freedom in selecting their concentrations, for example by way of specializations in the fields of biological physics, solid state physics, nonlinear dynamics, soft matter physics, or the physics of molecular systems. The students’ own initiatives are also actively supported. With the guidance and supervision of experienced teaching staff, students can select their concentrations to develop a demanding individualized curriculum that includes a period spent abroad. Our walkable campus fosters collaboration between professors and junior scholars in our well-equipped laboratories....

The focus of the master programme Astro and Particle Physics 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 Astro and Particle Physics is an international research-oriented two-year program established by the Kepler-Center. This programme connects science from the fields of particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology and combines different disciplines in experimental and theoretical physics, astronomy, and astrophysics. The education will be in English throughout which prepares the students for the increasing internationalization in industry and modern society....
The AMASE Masters course has been successfully implemented over the last five years with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme.
Best MScs in Physics in Germany 2019. Testimonials:
Maria from Colombia studied AMASE from 2015-2017. She was in Spain and France. She says:Now I am a PhD student at University of Amsterdam. This job allows me to strengthen my skills as researcher within an industrial focus and that is something I find very valuable. The international experiences I got from AMASE had been of great use to help me adapting to this new country.
Mike from Canada studied from 2013-2015 in France and Germany, he says: If you have the will and drive to seize it, AMASE offers you the opportunity to seriously challenge and develop yourself in much more than academics. I recognized that chance and embraced it completely.
