The master's degree programme Materials Science and Engineering consists of 4 semesters and 120 ECTS points.

In the first two semesters there is a compulsory part in materials science to deepen your knowledge and skills in natural and material sciences. It focuses on the field of solid state physics, thermodynamics, kinetics, mathematics and of course advanced materials. Special focus is put here on modern functional materials.

During the third semester students have the oppurtunity to explore elective modules to intensify their knowledge in a certain area. Additionally it is possible to study at a foreign university because no compulsory lectures are needed.

The fourth semester is reserved for the master thesis, which can be written at the university, at a company or an affiliated research institute.
