A prerequisite for taking the Master course is a Bachelor of Science from TU Darmstadt in Materials Science or an equivalent degree. Applicants holding a Bachelor degree in related subjects such as physics or chemistry are highly encouraged to apply. Materials and electrical engineers with a strong focus on Materials Science may also be considered.
Mechanical, aeronautical, automotive, chemical, petrochemical, process, and textile engineers will only be considered in exceptional cases. Strong focus means that you took additional elective courses in materials science. We expect a background in the fundamentals of materials science, in particular, in semiconductors, functional ceramics, metals, and polymers. The admission commission may require applicants to attend additional courses to achieve sufficient equivalency.
You can find detailed information on the course of studies, the module handbook, semester course and examination schedule as well as the course catalogue on TU Darmstadt's Central Student Advisory Service and Orientation website.
