What industry thinks of our department
"Highly qualified professionals are a vital basis for not only sustaining, but also developing Germany's leading edge in laser engineering. The practical relevance of programmes offered by the Department of Engineering Physics at Münster University of Applied Sciences makes the department an important source for graduate recruitment at TRUMPF. Many of our research and development staff, who support our product management, application development and sales, graduated with a Bachelor or Master's degree in Laser Engineering or Photonics. Thanks to their excellent grounding in theory and their industry-related training, these graduates help us to ensure our ability to offer customers innovative laser technologies for efficient, resource-saving production processes."
Dr. Christian Schmitz, Member of the Group Management Board and Chief Executive Officer for Laser Technology (CEO LT) at TRUMPF GmbH
"For engineers, the courage to embrace practical relevance ('maker mentality'), the ability to think in cooperative/interdisciplinary terms, and a solid grounding in theory and practice are preconditions for lifelong learning and sustained career success in the globalised world.
The Department of Engineering Physics prepares its students to meet these preconditions, and has the best contacts for a successful start to a career."
Dr. Wolfgang Göhde, Managing Director of Quantum Analysis
"I qualified as an engineer at Steinfurt in 1994. In my Diplom thesis, supervised by Professor Klaus Dickmann, I addressed the topic of 'laser hardening'. I've been working for the Westfalen Group since 1997, and am currently responsible for laser welding and cutting. I value the quality of the training provided at Münster University of Applied Sciences, and am delighted that our mutually beneficial cooperation enables me to remain in contact with my alma mater."
Georg Hopp, Westfalen Group
What graduates think of their degree programme at the Department of Engineering Physics
"The many options available to students on the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Engineering enable them to specialise to suit their individual interests. Small groups ensure an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, and students are supervised well by professors. The practice-based curriculum enables students to establish links with companies early on in the programme."
Nora Oellers, graduate of the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Engineering
"Degree programmes at the Department of Engineering Physics are highly interdisciplinary, enabling students to gain a solid grounding in technical subjects. My studies have enabled me to get to grips with new areas quickly."
Charlotte Franke, graduate of Industrial Engineering - Engineering Physics
