Degree structure

The Bachelor's program of Applied Physics is part of the TU/e Bachelor College.

The program consists of:

  • Your major - core subjects
  • Electives
  • USE (non-technical) subjects 

Half of the Bachelor’s program Applied Physics consists of major subjects in the field of Applied Physics. During your studies, you will acquire the basic knowledge and skills to help you understand natural phenomena and translate them into technological applications.

The program contains lectures that explain the theory. During guided self-study, you practice the theory by doing exercises. You apply the knowledge through Challenge-Based Learning (BCL) projects. More information about CBL.

The program is a mix of

  • Theory
  • Practical assignments
  • Projects
  • Research

During the projects, you learn to work in a team and you research natural phenomena. In your third year, you work as 'junior employee' in a research group for three months.

Duration of the program

The Bachelor's program of Applied Physics is a three-year program. You complete the program with a Final Bachelor's Project (BEP). Each year of study is worth 60 credits. The academic year is divided in four quarters.

Final Bachelor's Project

You complete your Bachelor's program with the Final Bachelor's Project, otherwise called the BEP. BEP assignments are linked to ongoing research activities at one of the research groups of the Applied Physics department.

More information about the Final Bachelor's Project can be found in the Study Guide.

Bachelor End Project

You finish your Bachelor studies with the Bachelor Final Project (BEP). BEP assignments correspond with ongoing research activities within one of the research groups of the Applied Physics department.
