First-Year Students

Information on the Beginning of Studies

Welcome to your Physics Studies!

The physicists at the University of Stuttgart apply themselves to both fundamental research as well as application-oriented research in the fields of solid matter state physics, atomic and quantum optics, photonics, quantum technologies, soft matter physics, strongly correlated many-body systems, physical modeling and numerical simulation. The application-oriented branches of research are active in numerous research alliances, both within the university as well as with the neighboring Fraunhofer Institute and industry. There is also a close cooperation with the two Max-Planck Institutes for physics in Stuttgart.

The scientists are involved in numerous regional, national and international cooperation projects, research alliances and special research areas throughout the department’s institutes.

The Physics Student Council offer you practical help and the possibility to network and meet future classmates during the first days of your studies.


The Physics Student Council offers a Facebook and a What'sApp group for First-Year Students. You are welcome to join!
