An overview of the M.Sc. Materials Science programme with all fundamental information can be found on the website of TU Darmstadt's Central Student Advisory Service and Orientation Office:
Prerequisite for being accepted to the M.Sc. Materials Science is a Bachelor of Science from TU Darmstadt in Materials Science or an equivalent degree.
We expect a background in the fundamentals of Materials Science. This contains engineering elements but goes beyond. In particular, knowledge about semiconductors, functional ceramics, metals, and physical chemistry including quantum mechanics is required.
Thus, applicants with a distinct engineering background – especially mechanical, aeronautical, automotive, chemical, petrochemical, process, and textile engineers – can only be accepted in exceptional cases. The admission commission may require applicants to attend additional courses to achieve sufficient equivalency.
Applicants holding a Bachelor's 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. “Strong focus” means that you took additional elective courses in Materials Science.
