Materials Science

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.

Germany, officially the Federal Republic of Germany, is a federal parliamentary republic in western-central Europe. The country consists of 16 states, and its capital and largest city is Berlin.

Best Masters in Materials Science in Germany 2017. Master of Science Product Refinement In the “Product Refinement“ program, which is unique worldwide, you will systematically gain technical expertise and develop your personal competences. You will become fully qualified and well prepared to adjust to the various requirements you will encounter in your future career. Lectures, seminars, internships and excursions will provide you with a solid knowledge of technical processes, advanced sciences and also economic aspects. Some tasks can be solved by means of teamwork, cooperating together with your fellow students. This Master program covers three semesters and can be commenced twice a year - in the winter semester and in the summer semester. In total, 90 credit points are to be collected. In addition to the 210 credit points attained from a seven-semester Bachelor degree program, 300 points can be achieved in total, which, in turn, qualifies a Master study course graduate for Ph.D. programs. It is possible for Bachelor graduates, who have only attained 180 points from a six-semester study course, to obtain a further 30 points by means of additional modules. You can align your studies to your own needs and preferences by choosing two elective modules. After completing the Master´s thesis in the third semester, you will receive the degree “Master of Science“ enabling you to proceed to a Ph.D. program. Admission requirements Three year Bachelor´s degree or Diploma in Engineering or Natural Sciences or equivalent qualification (210 European Credit Transfer System -ECTS-, in case of 180 ECTS a gateway is possible). The final grade of the degree should be well above average (”2.5” or better according to the German System). If English is not native language: Sufficient knowledge of the English language verified by a TOEFL (min. score 87 points) TOEIC (min. score 785 points), IELTS (min. 5.0) or equivalent. If German is not native language: Proof of German language skills (A2 for application) (B1 or equivalent for enrollment).

All lectures will be held in English. The program consists of four different module groups: General Principles - Engineering Specific Technologies - Refinement Technologies Specific Product Refinement Technologies Master´s Thesis The first three module groups consist of lectures and carry 20 credit points each. The module group „Master´s Thesis“(duration six month) includes the Master´s thesis itself and a colloquium on the content of the thesis with a poster presentation. In total, 90 credit points are to be collected. Added to the 210 credit points attained from a seven- semester Bachelor degree program, 300 points can be achieved in total, which, in turn, qualifies a Master study course graduate for Ph.D. programs.

Materials Research and Innovation specialisms - MPhil / PhD The MPhil/PhD in Materials Research and Innovation specialisms is particularly suitable for graduates in the materials science, engineering and technology sectors or for scientists and technologists working in these sectors. As a research student you will have access to the University’s resources and research expertise to support your personal development or your work within your organisation. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, general engineering research at the University, which includes work carried out by IMRI, was assessed as 'world-leading'. Subject overview IMRI is a multi-disciplinary centre designed to cultivate research and innovation activities in collaboration with industry and other academic institutions. The institute leads the UK, and is internationally known, for its strong applied materials science and engineering applications through the development of new, designer and novel smart and multifunctional materials (fibres, films, foams and particles) at nano and micro levels, as well as associated processing technologies. There are dedicated laboratories in the institute and state-of-the-art materials fabrication, characterisation and testing laboratories, complemented by a suite of materials modelling capabilities. IMRI also regularly carries out consultancy work for national as well as international clients. Staff also serve on technical advisory boards, international scientific panels and hold honorary appointments in overseas universities. IMRI is currently funded by the UK government (EPSRC and Technology Strategy Board), local industry consortia (DIUS), the EU (FP7) and international industry collaborations. Research topics Skills and expertise within IMRI include: medical and healthcare devices; intelligent materials (auxetic, piezoelectric, photovoltaic and electrorheological); smart microsystems (MEMS, self-powered sensors and actuators, surface acoustic waves, solar cells, nanomanipulators, wearables); technical textiles and fire retardancy. Available projects Research projects currently being carried out within IMRI include the following: - Piezoelectric, photovoltaic and solar cell systems for sustainable power regeneration; - Miniaturised biosensors and actuators for early diagnosis of pathogenic and chronic diseases (including, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and vulnerable heart plaque); - Wearable chemical-release self-powered and controlled devices for in vitro treatment (including, wound, antimicrobial, thermophysiological comfort and performance sports); - Functional fibre blends with fire retardant nano particles and encapsulants for protective textiles (including, fire fighting suits, bullet and knife proof police vests and composites); - Synthesis, applications and mechanisms of action of drugs and metallodrugs.
