Optics & Sensor Technology

The Technical Physics course teaches students how to apply natural laws to novel technologies and materials. Students are taught laser, microsystem, surface, semiconductor and optoelectronics technology. This basic knowledge is taught clearly and comprehensively. In the lecture hall and laboratory, students learn to think analytically and to find solutions. Due to the bridging function between physical research and technical development and application, the graduates of this course can be employed in many areas, for example in data processing, project planning and software or also in research and development in industrial laboratories, universities and large research institutions.

Career prospects

Technical Physics deals with the conversion of physical knowledge into future-oriented technologies as well as into processes and products that conserve resources and protect the environment. This requires a solid knowledge of the laws of nature as well as a profound knowledge of the properties of different and novel materials.

Technical physics comprises modern technologies, such as laser, micro system, surface, semiconductor or opto-electronics technology, the application of physical measurement methods to analyse and solve technical problems, the use of software and hardware to process and evaluate measurement data, mathematical and computer simulation methods for the computational acquisition of processes and the evaluation of chemicals with regard to their environmental compatibility.

What distinguishes graduates of the Technical Physics course at Deggendorf University of Technology from other courses? They have a broad basic knowledge, the ability to think analytically and the necessary competences to solve problems. In addition to technical skills, you will also learn soft skills such as presentation techniques or innovation management, enabling you to react flexibly to the demands of the job market. Not only knowledge is imparted, but also valuable insights are gained through the transfer into "skills"; thus you can bring the acquired theoretical knowledge into context.

A degree in Technical Physics enables you to work interdisciplinary in highly innovative areas. The fields of activity of graduates of technical physics range from research and development in the laboratories of industry, universities and large research institutions, to activities in the areas of data processing, software, organisation, project planning and processing, to production and manufacturing, sales and marketing in areas outside of technical physics. In addition, freelance activities, e.g. as an expert witness, are available. Internationally, there are many other career options available.
