Bachelor of Science in Materials Science
B.Sc. Materialwissenschaft

Future-oriented and diversified.

Our six semester B.Sc. progam is based on a profound education in different STEM areas. Simultaneously, from the first semester on, the specific material science knowledge is imparted. The contents of the lectures are accompanied by lab courses conducted with state-of-the-art equipment. You are about to face an extremely varied course of studies at the intersection of fundamental research and applicability – with countless possibilities for your idividual specialization.

The course is structured as follows:

  • Compulsory courses (lectures, exercises, lab internships) in which the fundamentals of materials science, mathematics, physics and chemistry are taught.
  • Minor compulsory courses in technical mechanics and electrical engineering (lectures, exercises).
  • The second part of the course focuses on methods of materials science as well as construction and functional materials. Structural and functional materials are the two main research areas of the Institute of Materials Science at TU Darmstadt:

    • construction materials like e.g. high temperature alloys for actuators or bioglass ceramics for bone implants in medical science

    • functional materials like semiconductors with particular properties for signal generation and signal processing, or ceramic materials for modern thin film technology being important for the fields of optical telecommunications engineering and information technology
  • In addition, two more elective subjects can be selected from the courses offered by the departments of the natural sciences or engineering, or from an interdisciplinary field (like Business Administration or Economics).
  • The Bachelor's Thesis comprises a small research project
