Physicist-Engineer BSc

Physicist-Engineer BSc

Our Physicist-Engineer program is a great option for you if you are creative, you like physics, mathematics, and technology, and you would like to advance frontline technology in rapidly developing fields such as quantum- and nanotechnology, data science and artificial intelligence, photonics, quantum optics and materials science, sustainable energetics, and nuclear technology. In collaboration with our industrial partners, we offer worldwide competitive, versatile knowledge in these fields to answer novel technological challenges. With a Physicist-Engineer degree, you will have the option to work as a developer, continue with one of our engineering programs, or – if attracted to fundamental science – you can continue with our Physicist Master Program, too.

Qualification Physicist-Engineer BSc

Language English

Start September

Admission procedure: (i) Pre-screening by high school graduation results (optional univ. certificate), motivation and recommendation letters (if available). (ii) Electronic admission test in mathematics and physics (online). (iii) Online interview in English (after passed written test): knowledge and preparedness, communication skills, motivation and attitude. (iv) Decision: admission to BSc program (min. 70% admission result) / rejection.

You can study at BME with a scholarship or as a self-funded student, by paying tuition fees. Various scholarships help you cover tuition fees and your living expenses during your studies. Successful PhD students may receive additional support from research grants.


Physicist-engineer students receive a balanced combination of courses in engineering, physics, mathematics, computer and data science, as well as management. Technological aspects are pronounced, but – compared to usual engineering programs – a stronger background in natural sciences is provided.
