Engineering Physics (B.Eng.)

The University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer and the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg offer an international bachelor's program in Engineering Physics to fill the gap between traditional physics and engineering. Students in this program acquire comprehensive knowledge and understanding of mathematics and the natural sciences in combination with application-oriented engineering, including the skills needed to further develop modern technologies.

Specialization takes place in the focus areas

The specialization can be continued in the master's degree.

Faculty of Technology

As a result of the program's well established scientific and practical aspects, graduates are very well qualified for all areas of technology-oriented industrial and research organizations, as well as for further study in the form of a master's degree (e.g., in Engineering Physics). Graduates also acquire practical experience from their project work, additionally qualifying them for employment in a management setting with skills such as teamwork and entrepreneurial thinking.

In the first five semesters, you will lay your professional foundations in physics as well as engineering sciences. The physics and mathematics modules are based closely on traditional physics education. In the engineering subjects, you will learn to quickly translate your knowledge into solutions for problems in science and industry.

Specialization takes place in the focus areas "Lasers and Optics", "Renewable Energies", "Biomedical Physics", or "Acoustics". During your eight-week internship in the practical module, you will apply the knowledge you have acquired. You will complete your studies with a nine-week bachelor's thesis, which you will write internally at the university, at external research institutes, or in an industrial company.
