The study focus is on a comprehensive understanding of the thermodynamics and kinetics of electrochemical phase boundaries. Among other things, students acquire in-depth knowledge of the technology fields of electrochemical surface technology and electrochemical energy storage and conversion.
The degree course enables graduates to successfully work in industry or research institutions on basic and applied challenges in electrochemical research and development. The acquired knowledge enables them to independently and quickly familiarize themselves with future technologies in electrochemistry and electroplating as well as related fields such as materials science or plasma technology. They are able to set up and manage projects and have social skills that also prepare them to take on management tasks. The training profile is geared to the industrial needs of the electroplating and surface treatment industry. To this end, the TU Ilmenau works closely with the Central Association for Surface Technology (ZVO) and numerous commercial enterprises in the field of electroplating and surface technology.
Master students - also in the 1st master semester - have the chance to receive funding in the form of a ZVO scholarship.
Specialist obligatory module (e.g. inorganic chemistry, electrochemical phase boundaries, surface and plating technology, renewable energies and storage technology, batteries and fuel cells)
Optional modules from the master program Materials Science and Engineering
Technical optional module (optional subjects from the academic master program)
