The division Physics offers courses for approximately 900 students, containing compulsory subject-specific basic training in 11 different courses in undergraduate studies and a special physical education in the main studies. In the physics lectures demonstration experiments support the learning process (repertory from more than 500 experiments), in the exercises is deepened by solving practical tasks. In the physics practical course (choice from 60 experiments) students acquire skills in experimental work.
The division Physics works in the research of selected technical applications of physical effects. For that reason there are measurement technologies for infrared thermography and building acoustics for the determination of surface resistances. Other faculties of HTW Dresden are assisted in solving physical problems.
