Engineering Physics (Bachelor's Programme)

Orientation and Goals

The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer offer an international bachelor's programme in Engineering Physics in order to fill the gap between traditional physics and engineering. Since 1998, students in this programme have acquired a 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. In laboratory projects, teams work through real world assignments. Many students complete their final project in a technology oriented business or an external research institute.

More than half of the students in the international Engineering Physics Programme come from abroad. Students from many continents work closely together in lectures, practice sessions, and projects. The classes in the first two semesters are offered entirely in English, and later contain an increasing share taught in German. Admission to this English speaking programme requires good English skills.

This bachelor's programme in Engineering Physics is accredited by the accreditation agency ASIIN (, and has been awarded the EUR-ACE® label. This ensures the international recognition of the programme.
