Advanced Quantum Physics

Master of Science

At the University of Tübingen, researchers in the field of quantum physics deal with atom-light-interactions, Rydberg physics, quantum sensors, quantum gases in magnetic and optical traps, optical and microwave resonators, many-body quantum systems, and hybrid systems consisting of ultracold atoms and superconducting structures. As a Master’s student in Advanced Quantum Physics you will attend lectures, seminars and practical courses on both experimental and theoretical quantum optics. In addition to getting hands-on experience in well-equipped labs, you will discuss problems of quantum science in a comprehensive way both by presenting a current topic to your lecturers and by co-learning with fellow students in small groups.

Master of Science

Duration: 4 semesters

Credits: 120 ECTS

EU: mid June - 15 Sept.
Non-EU: mid June - 15 July

During your two-year studies, you will receive support and advice by tutors on a regular basis. The degree will be earned after submitting a written thesis and holding an oral presentation of your findings. Graduates qualify for a PhD in a field of quantum sciences, e.g. in quantum optics, atom physics, quantum information, quantum simulation, quantum communication, quantum computing or quantum metrology. Apart from a career in science and research, graduates will find excellent working conditions in high-tech product development as well as the financial, consulting, and insurance sectors.

Tübingen is a great place to study. There are many places to enjoy. The Platanenallee is one of my favorites where I can go, relax and reflect. Also, the university has a lot of international students. I think this is a really important thing, it teaches you about different cultures and how to get along with each other.
