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
You can choose three areas of specialisation from among 13 advanced modules in Technical Physics. You can also choose electives from among the courses offered in the Physics master’s programme. As part of your master's thesis, you will work on one of the numerous current research projects.
Technical Physics gives you tools not only to see the world but also to understand it. Physics goes beyond the visible world.
TU Graz has opened doors that were closed to me before. In addition, all of the professors are so understanding and helpful. They have an honest and profound interest in their subject and they are fascinated by their specialist field.
The university has a large number of laboratories with great facilities that enable you to combine theory with practice. TU Graz also has numerous interesting connections to companies.
According to the curriculum, graduates of the following bachelor’s programmes offered at TU Graz and University of Graz will be accepted without an admission procedure:
Graduates of all other degree programmes offered at the TU Graz or, in the case of a NAWI Graz programme, the University of Graz, also do not have to undergo the admission procedure. You can apply for admission at the Registration Office.
All other programme applicants must undergo the admission procedure.
Registration period for the academic year 2020/21: 15 October to 15 December 2019
Understanding scientific and technical principles and using this knowledge to solve complex problems – that motivated me to start studying physics and also during my studies. Because I wanted to take a hands-on work approach, I chose to conduct experimental work for my degree theses. Now I work in a high-tech company that depends heavily on vertical integration. Exactly this kind of motivation and these types of skills are needed to work efficiently in an interface function on a wide range of topics.

Technical 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:
Technical physics forms the basis of all engineering sciences and therefore offers graduates a variety of fields of application in industry.
I am particularly fascinated by the representation of complex systems of reality through mathematical models, the simulation of these virtual models by means of numerical methods and the verification of the simulation results through experiments. All these topics are discussed in the master’s degree programmeTechnical Physicsand the required specialist knowledge is imparted.
