A special characteristic of the MSc in Physics at the Universität Stuttgart is to offer electives right from the very first semester. This is to enable students to organize their studies in accordance with their own special interests.
The elective lectures offered as part of the MSc Study Programme focus on two main fields: Condensed Matter Physics and Statistical Physics. These are also two of the major research fields of the Department of Physics and of the two Max Planck Institutes of Solid State Research and Intelligent Systems. The success of this research has contributed significantly to the international reputation of Physics in Stuttgart.
Below you find an overview on the elective lectures which were offered in the recent years. Please notice that not all elective lectures are offered each year in English language. You can check the Course Handbook for further details.
