Master of Science Materials Science

This page provides information for students of the programme M.Sc. Materials Science (also the related International Double Degree programmes) including important documents and forms for your studies.

Your Study Plan

The Master of Science programme Materials Science focuses on functional materials such as energy materials, magnetic materials, or electronic materials and their synthesis and characterization. Courses on theoretical materials science include quantum mechanics, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, and continuum mechanics.

There is a mandatory elective domain “Quantum Mechanics/Micromechanics” with a choice between the modules “Quantum Mechanics for Materials Science” and “Micromechanics for Materials Science.” The module not elected in this domain becomes part of the domain “Elective Courses Materials Science.”

A recognised industrial internship (“Praktikum”) of a minimum of six weeks is required and must be completed at the latest at the time of starting the Master’s Thesis.
