General Introduction

Jacobs University offers study programs according to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured along the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year undergraduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits. The curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme – the 3C Model – which groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:

The first study year is characterized by a broad offer in disciplinary and interdisciplinary education. Students select three CHOICE modules from a variety of study programs.

In the second year, students take three in-depth, discipline-specific CORE modules. One CORE module can also be taken from a second, complementary discipline, which allows students to incorporate a minor study track into their undergraduate education.

In the fifth semester, the World Track provides students either with an extended internship or a study abroad opportunity at a partner university. Students may also opt to stay on campus and continue
their undergraduate education, where they select specialization courses within their study program and pursue a project/research module including the Bachelor thesis.

Major Overview

Physics has developed fundamental concepts of space, time and matter which have shaped our view of the universe. It not only lays the foundation for other natural sciences, but physics is also a fundamental part of modern technology as it can be found in solar cells, computers, and air planes.

The program covers an introduction to classical and modern physics followed by advanced courses in electrodynamics, relativity, quantum physics, and solid state physics, to name but a few. Students get the opportunity to participate in current faculty research projects.


Careers in research (including interdisciplinary fields of geoscience, biophysics, and nanotechnology), engineering-based positions in academia and industry, working in the financial sector, consultancy, aerospace engineering, medical technology, information technology, and renewable energies.
