JKU Young Physics Scientists.

If you know all about the colors in the sky as well as about a smartphone's complex features then you're already acquainted with the field of physics! Learn more aboiut the world of natural laws and their modern applications, ranging from the world of research to how it impacts your everyday life.

As part of the JKU Young Physics Scientists program, you will meet internationally renowned researchers and experts. During the workshop sessions, you not only learn from them, you also find out more about prospective careers and degree programs.

As a JKU Young Scientist, we also offer a unique opportunity to complete a summer internship at the JKU or at a well-known company in Upper Austria.
