Major Applied Physics

This education guide contains study related information about the study Applied Physics within the TU/e Bachelor College as well as all kinds of practical study information. The website is updated regularly during the academic year, also with regard to information, procedures and regulations concerning the corona-crisis during the academic year of 2020-2021.

Information about TU/e measures that have been taken due to the Corona period can be found here.

Additionally, all students are added to the CANVAS page 3AP-INFO-STUDENT. This is the information and communication channel for all students of the educational programs of the department Applied Physics (AP). Via announcements you will receive important information, messages and updates about our education. To make sure you don't miss any announcements, it's important that you turn on the notifications for the announcements and that you make sure you subscribe to one or more of the sub channels to receive the information that is applicable to you.


Half of the three-year Bachelor's program is devoted to the major Applied Physics, containing major courses in the field of mathematics and physics, which will prepare you for a job as an engineer in the Applied Physics domain. Next to the major courses, all bachelor TU/e students follow a number of basic courses like mathematics, physics and data analytics. These courses will give you the sound basis that you will need as an engineer and you will gain professional skills such as collaboration skills and planning and organizing skills as well. Via elective courses, you are able to further shape your study right from the beginning.

The Bachelor program Applied Physics is intended to lay the foundation for the students’ scientific approach. This implies that the education during this program gets increasingly connected to research, finally ending with the Bachelor Final Project in which the student acts as a junior researcher in one of the tracks of the department.
