The Materials Science program is an interdisciplinary M.S. program aimed at providing a rigorous education in materials science and the fundamental physics and chemistry that underlie this discipline. Educational goals are achieved through both coursework and training in cross-disciplinary research supervised by one science faculty member. The courses offer an overview of the types of materials; their chemical and physical structures; and properties.

The successful applicant must have a BSc. degree in Chemistry, in Chemical and Environmental Process Engineering, in Physics, in Materials Engineering or in any similar degree including a reasonable amount of natural science (at least 40 ECTS) in the curriculum.

Interest in new materials (e.g. superconductor) and new technology (e.g. space technology), as well as a better understanding of the behavior of materials in the design of structures (such as automobiles and aircraft, plant processing equipment, electronic devices, biomedical devices, etc.) have increased the need for people trained in science of materials.

Educational goals are achieved through both coursework and training in cross-disciplinary research supervised by one science faculty member. The courses offer an overview of the types of materials; their chemical and physical structures; and properties. The M.S. program is based on lectures, seminars and practical laboratories in advanced materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, biomaterials, and their composites. The M.S. program introduces the micro- and nanotechnology as well as electronic, magnetic and other functional materials. The compulsory basic courses provide the solid framework of the program; the semi-optional and special lecture courses give the basis of the specialization and their wide choice results in the flexibility of the program.
