Modern Lasers are high power tools for numerous applications in industry and research. If applied correctly, laser technology may edit materials, transfer data, perform measurements or may be applied in Life Sciences. Developments in different fields, from entertainment technologies to fundamental researches, would hardly be possible. Applying laser radiation is unbelievably varied and thus a key technology in the 21st century, which must be continuously researched and developed based on its enormous potential. Accordingly, there is a wide and a future-proof field of activity for highly qualified professionals in the field of laser technology.

Training Objective

The study objective is to achieve the "Bachelor of Science" (B. Sc.) in Laser Technology. Due to the combination of practically oriented and theoretical training varied knowledge and skills will be gained in the following fields:

  • Scientific Fundamentals (Physics, Mathematics und Chemistry)
  • Technical Optics
  • Generation and Use of Laser Beams
  • Laser Device Technology and Laser Safety
  • Construction and Production Techniques
  • Electrical engineering and Computer Sciences
  • Material Sciences

Besides professional competence, social competence will be imparted during the training. Individual Responsibility, engagement as well as ability to work in a team and communication skills are important Soft Skills and elementary for a successful future of each individual graduate.

Structure of the Study

The Laser Technology study (B. Sc.) pools the knowledge and understanding for the application of laser beams based on a broad technical and scientific education. The standard period of study is 6 semester is structured in the following sections:

1st to 3rd Semester

  • Scientific and technical basics, Language

4th to 5th Semester 

  • Deepening of the scientific and technical basics, subject specific education, economic basics 

6th Semester

  • Practical Module and Bachelor Thesis

The curriculum is modularly build up and consists equally of basic and engineering modules as well assubject specific laser technic modules. The lectures and seminars will be mainly conducted in small seminar groups. Furthermore, the practical modules are carried out by small groups of 2 to 4 people, which ensures an individual supervising by Professors, Lecturers throughout the entire studies.
