Short description of the study programme

In September 2023 BME launches a new program to train Physicist-Engineers with strong R&D potential. Our program focuses on rapidly developing technological areas such as quantum and nanotechnology, data science and artificial intelligence, photonics, quantum optics and materials science, sustainable energetics, and nuclear technology.


Physicist-engineer students receive a balanced combination of courses on engineering, physics, mathematics, computer and data science, and management. Technological aspects are pronounced in the curriculum of Physicist-Engineer students, who receive, however, a stronger education in natural sciences than usual engineering students. This makes them unique and most capable of performing creative and innovative R&D activity in fields related to the three available specializations: Nanotechnology and Quantum Applications, Nuclear Technologies and Sustainable Energetics and Scientific Data Processing. The program includes a 6-week internship providing industrial and research training at leading national and international R&D companies.

Career options

Innovative companies raise an overwhelming demand for creative experts who can bridge the scientific and technological aspects of frontline research & development. Accordingly, our Physicist-Engineer students can expect prestigious and high-paying jobs at companies specialized in a broad range of fields, like research and development of emerging technologies, data science and artificial intelligence, energetics, nuclear technologies, medical device development, semiconductor industry, automotive industry, etc.


Employment is directly possible after the BSc degree, or studies can be continued on one of our engineering MSc programs or Physics or Applied Mathematics MSc programs. After obtaining an MSc, our most dedicated students can enroll in our PhD school to become highly qualified researchers or even pursue an academic career.
