Master programme Advanced Materials Science (E)

Content and focus of the degree programme:

The master’s programme combines the fields of physics, chemistry and materials sciences, with a specialisation in materials sciences. Knowledge of the production, processing, characterisation and application of materials is of special relevance. The application of scientific physical, chemical and materials sciences methods as well as critical, analytical and problem resolution-oriented thinking also plays an important role in the course. The study programme provides a general overview of solid state chemistry and physics, production and processing processes, characterisation of materials as well as modelling and simulation. Students can specialise in the fields of metallic and ceramic materials, semiconductor process engineering and nanotechnology or polymer sciences and plastics engineering. Graduates will have excellent job prospects e.g. in the fields of industrial research and development (semiconductor industry, materials industry) and high-tech industry (new technologies, process innovation).

Definition of the field of studies

The field of Advanced Materials Science deals with the (further) development, characterisation and application of materials. The development of new materials can be regarded as a foundation on which to open up future-oriented applications.


The master’s programme is divided up into four semesters and includes the following general compulsory subjects: integrative laboratory materials, solid state physics, materials sciences, nuclear physics and quantum mechanics, applied chemistry, analytical chemistry, selection of materials, production and processing processes, characterisation of materials, physical properties of materials (1st and 2nd semester). As of the second semester students will choose their specialised courses, which include metallic and ceramic materials (ductility, original and formation processes, functional materials), semiconductor process engineering and nanotechnology (physics of the semiconductor parts, surface chemistry, nanostructures and nanotechnology) as well as polymer sciences and plastics engineering (macromolecular materials, nanostructures in polymers, modern polymer characterisation). Students will be supported in undertaking a study period abroad. Students have to write a master's thesis. The study programme concludes with a master’s examination before a board of examiners.
