With 21 professors, around 100 employees and the courses in physics and medical physics, physics is a lively subject at the mathematics and natural science faculty of the HHU, in which there is a good atmosphere between students and teachers.


Please take a look at the information on the following page:

Since the academic year 2017/18, the physics department has been awarding up to 5 scholarships to students in the bachelor's degree courses in physics and medical physics. The scholarships are awarded according to the examination results in the four first semseter modules Analysis I, Experimental Mechanics, Mathematical Methods I and Optics. The scholarship takes one year an includes a 200 € per month.

Application criteria:

  • Ordinary student in (medical) physics
  • Start of studies SS 2020 or WS 20/21
  • Analysis I, Experimental Mechanics, Mathematical Methods I, Optics in the first attempt
  • Average grade for modules <2.5
  • To date, no other scholarship has been awarded

You can apply by June 15, 2020 by emailing Prof. Dr. Dr. Müller (carsten.mueller.2@hhu.de). Please hand in the application, a tabular curriculum vitae and a performance overview, from the administration, that you have passed all exams on the first attempt.

The Fachgruppe Physik Wissenschaftliche Einrichtung Physik at the Bergische Universität and the Wissenschaftliche Einrichtung Physik at the Heinrich Heine University jointly award the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Dissertation Prize 2021.
