Materials Science and Engineering Master of Science (M.Sc.)

The Master's program in Materials Science and Engineering combines technology with natural science in the search for ever better or even novel materials and materials.
The integration into the engineering sciences enables an overall view from atomic structure to process technology and application in a concrete product.
In addition to compulsory subjects amounting to 30 credit points (ECTS) on the topics of thermodynamics, kinetics,
simulation, materials analysis and properties, the wide range of options allows students to specialize in the areas of materials process technology, computational materials science, engineering materials or functional materials.
In addition, there is a broad cross-faculty selection of courses in the area of "technical specialization". In order to consolidate the practical relevance, an internship of at least three months is planned.
work placement is planned.
