Studying physics at the RUB

How do galaxies evolve? Is there a difference between the light of the sun and the light of the stars? Why does nuclear fission provide energy? How can ultrasound make an embryo visible?

We physicists get to the bottom of these and countless other small and big questions: The origin of the universe interests us just as much as the interaction between the smallest elementary particles.

In your physics studies, you will explore problems theoretically and experimentally. We support you with our excellent teaching and advising as well as numerous learning opportunities.
