Materials Science & Engineering
The degree program
The consecutive master's degree program in materials science
& engineering (MatWerk) teaches technical specialization
and specializations of a preceding bachelor's degree program,
so that the students will receive a reinforced scientific
training in MatWerk. This means well-founded knowledge on
mechanical, chemical, optical, electrical and magnetic
properties of materials, based on their atomic structure and
the interrelations between manufacturer and processing,
structure and properties of materials, up to macroscopic parts
and considering aspects of environmental compatibility and
The target of this degree program is the concurrent mediation of technical competences from the areas of material technology (engineering) and material science (natural sciences), which can only be studied separately of each in the majority of programs at other universities.
Structure of the degree program
Theoretical & experimental bases of materials science & engineering
1. + 2. semester
Additions to the theoretical & experimental bases
1. - 3. semester
2. - 4. semester
Specialization II: Lab course, seminar, individual additions, and master thesis
2. - 4. semester
- A bachelor’s degree in engineering, natural science, materials science and engineering or a comparable degree program is required. The degree must have been awarded with a grade of 3.0 or better.
- The aforementioned comparability is evaluated by the audit committee.
- Knowledge of the German language.
To reinforce the theoretical material-sciences and material-technology knowledge, the program places its focus on seminar series and engineering as well as natural sciences technical labs and internships. An industrial internship is not planned.
Examination regulations/ degree plan/ module
manuals/ internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...). The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend taking at least a look at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
