Due to the wide scope of education, the practice-oriented research and to the fact that Dresden is the only German university which offers "radiation physics" as specialisation for physics students, our alumni are best prepared for the labour market.
Tasks for our physicists arise within the context of health physics and at the application of ionizing radiation in fields of research, technics and medicine:
- research institutes (i.e. HZDR, HZM, DKFZ Heidelberg, CERN Genf, VIK Dubna, HMI Berlin)
- medical facilities (radiology or nuclear medicine at (university) hospitals)
- public authorities or regulatory agencies (Federal Office for Radiation Protection, State Office for Environment, TÜV, business inspectorate agencies, materials testing agencies)
- industry (development, industrial production and sales and marketing of measurement equipment, operating companies of nuclear power plants, companies for the dismantling of nuclear facilities, nuclear waste disposal and final repository)
- engineering consultants with tasks at environmental monitoring
About 80 % of our alumni found first jobs in such institutions.
