Admission to the Master Materials Science

Information about the admission process to the master program Materials Science.

Dear Students,

the transition from the bachelor to the master study course, is regulated by the admission regulation.

The admission regulation governs the admission process, in which points will be awarded to the master applicants. Totally 100 points can be obtained in the process. For a direct admission 81 points are necessary. Between 65 and 80 points an in the applicants have a chance via an interview to be accepted in the Master Course.

The total amount of points in the admission process is composed of two parts:

  1. For each tenth part of a mark (obtained in the Bachelor Course) better than 3.0 (German evaluation system) the applicant will be awarted 1 point (maximum 20 points with the mark 1.0; 1 point with the mark 2.9). Marks attained at universities abroad will be converted into German marks.

  2. The degree of compatibility of the Bachelor of the applicant with the Bachelor Materials Science in Stuttgart is judged. At most 80 points are given for fully compatible Bachelor degrees. 

Applications for the Master Materials Science have to be submitted to the university, for the winter semester until 15th of July and for the summer semester until 15th of January (detailed informations about the application process can be find here). 

Because the Master Materials Science is offered in English language, the applicants have to approve a certain minimum fluency. In the admission regulation the minimum fluency is defined as follows:

TOEFL PBT:575 points; TOEFL CBT 225 points; TOEFL iBT 90 points; IELTS minimum band 6.5; Cambridge ESOL CAE/CPE. 

For alumni of an English taught Bachelor a confirmation of the University concerned, that the language used was English, is sufficient.
