Bachelor of Science
standard length of study
May 16 - October 15 | January 16 - July 15 (International Students)
We want products that work flawlessly, look good, last a long time and are still cheap. Materials scientists are researching new materials and manufacturing processes that meet these requirements: intelligent functional materials, damage-tolerant composite structures or novel processing and coating technologies are crucial innovation factors.
Materials scientists learn how different materials are constructed and which features they have. Important aspects here are the production, the processing and editing, the application and disposal. Materials science is an interdisciplinary field that ranges from basic research to the technical and commercial use of modern materials.
The major Materials Science and Engineering at TU Ilmenau is a combined study course with the FSU Jena and thus exploits the entire potential of both universities. Ilmenau focuses in particular on practical and application-oriented materials technology, while Jena is primarily concerned with the fundamentals of materials science. During the course of study, the offers of both universities can be combined to form an individual study plan.
Metallic materials and composites
Materials of electrical engineering and electronic
Foundations of electorchemistry and electroplating
Detailed overview: Materials Science and Engineering (Bachelor)
I chose Ilmenau because it is a small university and so I can find many friends.
The small major makes the relationship between staff and students very personal.
The Bachelor of Materials Science and Engineering attaches great importance to practical work and applying the knowledge gained, so that during the study internships frequently take place in the own laboratories. In addition, a project work in the fifth and a 12-week professional internship in the sixth semester are foreseen. There is no compulsory basic internship.
