Each year, the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy welcomes approximately 80-100 new students, who enroll in the courses of studies: Physics and Material Technology/ Material Science (both as Bachelor and Master) as well as the teaching degree program in Physics. The faculty also offers an English-language program of study, named Master in Photonics, which is run by the Abbe School of Photonics and is in high demand globally. There are 40 professors and 235 research assistants, who are there to support the faculty's 700 students.  

The special flair of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy can not only be attributed to its central location and idyllic proximity to nature but also to its excellent student - professor ratio. The city, industry and faculty have all been closely connected to one another for two hundred years, and almost rely on one another.
