# Bachelor Program

### The colors code the following:

blue – experimental physics

yellow – theoretical physics

pink – mathematics

green – computational physics

### Experimental Physics

The experimentalist's view on Physics is presented in four lectures *Physik I-IV. Physik I* covers Mechanics and an introduction to Thermodynamics. *Physik II *is about Waves and Electricity. In *Physik III *the main topics are Optics and Electromagnetic Waves. *Physik IV *concentrates on Atomic Physics.

In the first four semesters there is *Grundpraktikum* and later *Fortgeschrittenenpraktikum* which both are lab courses. For further explanation see below.

### Theoretical Physics

Starting with a mathematical introduction and setting the basics in the first year, *Theoretische Physik I-IV *equips you with concepts and techniques that are used in Classical Mechanics/Relativistics, Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetic Theory and Statistical Physics.

### Mathematics

These lectures probably will not be very interesting for you as you will be past your first two academic years before arriving at Darmstadt. However, if you would like to learn something about mathematics, feel free to join.

N.B.: There is an English program in mathematics which allows attending lectures in English!

### Computational Physics

This course deals with the use of computers to tackle physics problems. Towards the end, students are working on a final project. Many of the topics covered can be put to use in later work and studies.
