Study SSP and explore the infinite vastness of space!

Exploring the solar system has always been one of mankind’s most fascinating endeavours, and it continues to pose great challenges. Scientists today study celestial bodies with the aid of modern ground- and space-based telescopes and using probes that venture deep into space. To successfully collect data about our solar system, these space missions rely on countless, highly sophisticated technologies. To further the continuous advancement of these technologies and the invention of new ones, an in-depth understanding of the physics of our solar system is required. The Master’s programme in Solar System Physics prepares students for this challenge.

What is special about TU Braunschweig?

TU Braunschweig’s Master’s programme in Solar System Physics is the only one of its kind in Germany. It offers you the chance to study the physics of our solar system and to qualify for a future career in the aerospace industry or in exploring planetary bodies. The programme perfectly complements the focus on Space Physics and Technology of TU Braunschweig’s Physics Department.
