Functional Materials, Master of Science
Was versteht man unter "Functional Materials"?
The master’s degree program „Functional Materials“ offered in Marburg aims at a research-oriented education in the field of modern functional materials. The key to the development and improvement of these materials is a detailed understanding of their physical working principles, their synthesis and preparation and their characterization. The two years study course will lead to a „masters in material science“.
The teaching language is English. Knowledge of German is not required. (Note, also for living in Germany you do not need to speak German. Pretty much everybody speaks English)
The program will qualify you for basic and applied research and development in the industry in the fields of nanotechnology, chemistry, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. It also qualifies you for a later PhD program and an academic career.
In addition to the fundamental and specialized courses, the program offers hands on lab projects in modern, well equipped laboratories, and projects with international collaborators.
During the masters program one can specialize in the synthesis, characterization and theoretical description of functional materials. Thus, it's very much up to you which focus you choose within the exciting world of functionalized materials.
Note: in Marburg we do not cover the entire field of functional materials. We are strong in semiconductors, molecular films, nanoparticles and the characterization and theoretical description of these materials.
