- Synthesis and Characterisation of functional materials
- Electives allow for setting an individual focus (mathematics, biology, geoscience, economics, and computer science)
- Lectures will be held in English (choices in electives are thus restricted)
- Possibility of studying a semester abroad
The Master's programme comprises three semesters of full-time study with a total amount of 90 ECTS. For students with a Bachelor's with 180 ECTS, an additional 30 ECTS (one semester) is offered. Ultimately, a total of 300 ECTS have to be earned.
The programme consists of a compulsory part on solid state physics as well as the synthesis and characterisation of functional materials. This gives students a broad knowledge in the field of functional materials (15 ECTS). Furthermore, three optional modules (18 ECTS) out of six in specific application fields of chemistry and physics in material science have to be chosen. Electives (12 ECTS) and a research project (15 ECTS) prepare the students for their final Master's thesis and a final oral exam (30 ECTS).
Study abroad unit(s)
Not necessary, but optional for internship or Master's thesis
Forms of assessment
Written and oral exams, project work, lab report, presentations, Master's thesis
Our graduates are duly qualified for jobs in scientific facilities, research institutes, authorities or industry. In addition, the Master's programme prepares students for further research and a PhD in this field.
