General Information

In the increasingly complex world of work, it is advantageous to gain knowledge in many different areas in order to be optimally prepared for the most diverse challenges. Especially in research and development of new technologies, creativity and thinking beyond fixed disciplinary boundaries is required. For this reason, the Master's programme in Optical Technologies combines the teaching of engineering methods on one hand with basic physics on the other. Students study both at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics.
