Suggested Masters in Materials Science & Engineering

M.Sc. Materials Science and Engineering

The importance of materials science has significantly increased as a result of rapid technological developments in the past few years. Consequently, the demand for well-educated materials scientists and engineers is rapidly growing. The Master’s Degree Programme in Materials Science and Engineering is delivered by Tampere University of Technology.

Faculty of Engineering Sciences
M.Sc. Electro Acoustics

The International Master's Degree in Electro Acoustics - IMDEA - was created at the request of the EMV Foundation which found a lack of engineers in this field for several years. The “Université du Maine” and the EMV foundation have defined the objectives and career opportunities in this Master's programme together.

Master Joint Nordic Master in Polymer Technology

The Joint Nordic Master in Polymer Technology programme at the Chalmers University of Technology provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. A broad range of courses and specialisations allows students to customise their own degree profile enabling the focus on individual areas of interest.

Joint Master’s programmes
M.Sc. Materials Chemistry

Society is increasingly relying on chemistry in creating materials that are more environmentally sustainable, more durable, lighter, consume less energy and are cheaper. This Materials Chemistry programme is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.

About

Find out more information about this Discipline

Materials science deals with the structural analysis of materials, the discovery of new material substances and their application to various industries. The materials engineering field looks into relationships between properties of materials and their mechanical structure at the atomic level.

Professional scientists and engineers develop materials such as metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers, composites and biomaterials that other engineers need for their designs. The right materials help drive product innovation in all industries from aircrafts, medical equipment, gadgets, to musical instruments and environmental friendly technologies.

Materials engineering is based on supportive areas such as thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and nanoscience. Study programmes in material sciences combines in-depth knowledge of the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of materials with the training in production techniques and the selection of appropriate materials for a wide range of applications. Universities offer a wide range of specialisations in the field, such as magnetic and nano-materials, structural materials, electronic materials and interfaces, energy materials and application, biomaterials, and more.

Graduates learn how materials behave and how their properties change during the process of raw materials becoming designed products. Most professionals work in offices using computer-aided design (CAD) software or in development labs, where they have access to cutting-edge equipment. Others work as supervisors in factories or research institutes.
