Materials science is the discipline in which materials are researched and developed from a scientific point of view. It is one of the decisive key technologies of the 21st century:

  • New lightweight construction materials, high-temperature materials or high-performance magnets increase the efficiency of vehicles, turbines and engines.
  • Innovative electrode materials multiply the service life and storage capacity of batteries.
  • High-performance “smartphones” or computers are only possible through semiconductor materials with extreme purity and the control of their atomic structure.
  • Optimization of magnetic properties for the production of more powerful and lighter electric motors.



The degree opens up a broad professional field of activity, which ranges from material selection, advice and quality assurance to research activities in industry. The bachelor's degree is a prerequisite for further scientific training in a relevant master’s degree in materials science or related areas of physics and chemistry.
