The Bachelor programme encompasses both the basics of Physics and Mathematics and insight into the practical work in the laboratory.
The Physics Bachelor curriculum has close ties with Mathematics. This pair has been complemented by the third field of Computational Science and Engineering, which has its own curriculum. The close connection between these three subjects means that students can easily change between subjects in the first year of the curricula.
From the autumn semester 2016, undergraduate Physics students will be able to take their first-year exams in two separate blocks as part of a 4-year pilot project. You can find further information in the ETH News.
