Modular Structure of the  Master Course Materials Science

To finish the Master degree, modules must be completed in the total amout of 120 CP
(CP = credit point; 1 CP equals 30 h) in accordance to the following regulations:

Compulsory Modules (Materials Science)
Name CP
Synthesis and Properties of Inorganic Materials 6
Advanced Materials Science Laboratory 9
Atomic Transport and Phase Transformations 6
Polymer Materials Science 9
Advanced Science Seminar (1) 6
Practical Skills and Project Planning(2) 15
Sum 51

(1) The module "Advanced Science Seminar" comprises participation in a seminar (presentation of a scientific talk and discussion of the contributions of other students) and the certified attention to at least 8 talks in the Materials Science Colloquium. Seminars to varying topics will be regularly offered by the university teachers.
(2) The module "Practical Skills and Project Planning" is usually performed in the same scientific group as the Master Project.

Compulsory Optional Modules (related or unrelated to Materials Science)
Name CP
General Skills (chosen from catalogue) 0-9
Engineering Science (chosen from catalogue) 0-9
Sum 51
Subject of Specialization (Compulsory Optional)
Name CP
Subject I: Modules chosen from according catalogue 12-18
Subject II: Modules chosen from according catalogue 12-18
Sum 30

The "Specialisation Subjects" represent the core of the scientific education. Presently, they can be chosen from the following:

  • Advanced Materials Characterization
  • Functional Materials
  • Inorganic Materials Chemistry
  • Materials Theory and Simulation
  • Metals and Structural Materials
  • Nanomaterials and Surfaces
  • Plastics Engineering
  • Soft Matter and Bio-Materials

Each of these subjects offers a choice of different related modules which can be selected in accordance to the "Subject Catalog of Material Science Specialization Catalog". In exceptional cases, also individual choices can be approved by the Chair of the examination board, if coherent profile is built. Some modules are only offered in biannual frequency. So early planning of your individual schedule is recommended.
