Bachelor's degree in a similar field
possible throughout the year
The master program is consecutive and based on the bachelor degree in Material Science and Engineering. It can also be attended by graduates from other engineering or functional relevant majors with at least 50 credit points in general natural scientific basics.
The program is continued as a joint major at the Universities of Ilmenau and Jena. During study, deeper knowledge about the structure, properties, production and development of all materials (metals, glasses, ceramics, polymers and composites) is taught.
The study profile deepenes the fundamental principles of experimental and theoretical materials science with further physicochemical fundamentals as well as engineering sciences core themes from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and micro- and nanotechnology to a deepening and innovative study offer. It has an engineering, technological orientation and has its main focus in material engineering.
The aim of the research-oriented master program in Materials Science and Engineering is the training of students with a broad engineering-scientific basis, methodological competence and an understanding of current material-scientific questions.
