The four-semester master’s programme trains materials scientists in all aspects of the development, characterisation and application of new materials. The development of new materials can be regarded as a foundation on which to open up future-oriented applications. A prerequisite for this is an interdisciplinary knowledge of chemistry, physics and engineering and this is acquired in the master’s programme. An area of concentration can be chosen from the fields of “Metallic and Ceramic Materials”, “Semiconductor Process Engineering and Nanotechnology” and “Polymer Sciences and Plastics Engineering.”
The master’s programme builds on the content of a bachelor’s programme in a suitable specialised area, as for instance in the following bachelor’s programmes: Mechanical Engineering and Business Economics, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Technical Chemistry, Physics, Technical Physics and Electrical Engineering. Graduates are awarded the academic degree of “Diplom-Ingenieurin” or “Diplom-Ingenieur” (Dipl.-Ing), which is internationally equivalent to a “Master of Science” (“MSc”).
Graduates of the Advanced Materials Science master’s programme are mostly employed in the field of materials sciences in science and technology. Typical occupational fields include:
- Industrial research and development (materials industry, chemical industry, semiconductor industry, etc.);
- The high-tech field of new materials, new technologies, process innovation and IT;
- Scientific research and teaching.
