In the BSc180, remaining credit points missing from the total of 180 ECTS credits must be earned in elective modules. Students may select module in any subject area at the University or ETH. The Physics Department offers the following modules:
- PHY123 and PHY224: half day
- PHY261: Leading practical trainings or Exercises. The minimum requirement is a full time work load (on average 5 SWH) over two semesters in at least two different topics. PHY111/PHY121 (Physics I/II) and PHY112/122 (Practical training I/II) are prerequisites.
- PHY271: In general, students are awarded 2 ECTS credits for every experiment that is successfully completed. Students are expected to work on these experiments independently and are not bound by a particular schedule.
The courses for the minor SIM (Simulations in the Natural Sciences) are
also recommended as individual elective modules.
Any extra credits from the core elective block can also be counted here.
Courses at the language center cannot count as elective modules.
