The graduates of the Master's program in Physics at the University of Vienna are able to observe complex phenomena in nature and technology experimentally and to describe them theoretically-mathematically or to simulate and model them computer-aided.  They have advanced knowledge and master the modern research methods of their field.  Due to their well-founded scientific education as well as their ability to think analytically trained in research practice, graduates are able to work independently and methodically and to develop problem-solving competence in various fields.  The job profile of physicists is accordingly broad and includes activities at universities and non-university research institutions, in industry (research and development, management), in the health sector, in the public sector and in service companies (banks, insurance companies, management consultancy). In their professional activities, the graduates also benefit from the knowledge of English practised in research.
