KIT is one of the leading research institutes in the many areas of "Material Science and Material Technology". New and constantly improved materials are requirements and at the same time impetus for modern technologies: composite materials for fuel-efficient lightweight concepts in automotive, high-performance functional materials for more powerful information and energy storage systems, and biocompatible materials for medical equipments are just a few examples.
In science and industry, the need for professionals with well-established training from universities in this area is growing. Starting from the Winter semester 2011/2012, KIT offers the interdisciplinary Bachelor's and Master's academic programs of "Material Science and Material Technology" for the first time under the general management of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. They combine fundamentals with applications and are particularly attractive for prospective students who possess the scientific interest and at the same time practical orientation. The Master's academic program builds on the content of the Bachelor's academic program of the same name, but is also open to graduates of other scientific and engineering Bachelor's degree programs who wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of "Material Science and Material Technology". A flyer about the program is available here.
The admission to the Bachelor's academic program is not limitted. The application deadline for the Winter semester ends on Septemer 15th.
