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.


This winter semester, the physical colloquium will again take place in attendance. The colloquium always takes place on the days mentioned in the program at 4:30 p.m. in lecture hall 5J. The colloquium is open to all interested parties and is ideal for looking beyond the box of your own research.


The Department of Physics at Bergische Universität Wuppertal, together with the Scientific Institute for Physics at Heinrich Heine University, annually awards the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Dissertation Prize, which is supported by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation. The best dissertation in physics is selected in a competition.

The best applicants selected by a jury are invited to a decision-making colloquium where they can present their scientific work and compete for the prize. Here, too, a jury decides who can take the prize home with them.
