Bachelor's Degree Programme Physics

Physics plays a key role in natural sciences and technology. Physicists are universal problem solvers who work in very different high-tech areas. If you are interested in complex mathematical and physical connections, enjoy experimenting and think in an analytical manner, physics might be just the right choice for you. The NAWI Graz bachelor's programme Physics provides you with a broad, fundamental education in physics.


  • You learn about underlying mathematical methods.
  • You acquire knowledge of the core areas of physics: mechanics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and optics.
  • You gain an insight into the composition of materials: nuclear physics, atom physics, molecular physics and solid state physics.
  • You apply the most important physics methods: measurement technology, modelling and simulation, and work on physics questions with the help of computers.
  • You learn problem solving and abstraction.

I study Physics because that’s just the way it is was never enough for me.

Career Options

Physicists are highly qualified specialists, who work in natural science related and technical areas in industry, commerce and science.

For example, they work in

  • basic research at universities and research institutions,
  • industrial research and development in high-tech fields e.g. in the development of new materials and new technologies, in process innovation, information technology,
  • software development,
  • modelling and computer simulation, or
  • in the development of medical-technical applications.

In order to be qualified to work as a physicist, you will need to complete a master's programme after your bachelor's – either at TU Graz or at another university in Austria or abroad.
