Information on the research phase (2nd year of study)

The central element of the research phase in the second year of study is the Master's thesis worth 30 credit points. This involves independent research work on a current issue in modern medical physics. The prerequisite for this research work within the framework of the Master's thesis is first of all learning special methods and skills of experimental practice as well as project planning. This preparatory phase is divided into a research internship worth 15 credit points and a module "Knowledge of Methods and Project Planning", also worth 15 credit points. Throughout the research phase, students acquire universal key competences in the area of project management, teamwork and the presentation and presentation of scientific results. These aspects of scientific work on the front lines of research, which are particularly valued by employers, are specifically promoted in the aforementioned module "Knowledge of Methods and Project Planning".

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
