The program is strongly research oriented and offers students to focus on either "Nanomaterials" (nanoscaled materials with e.g. special electrical or optical traits or quantum effects) or "Biomaterials" (materials e.g. employed in cell culture, drug delivery, surgery and dental implants).
An international and interdisciplinary program taught entirely in English, "Advanced Materials" is designed for both international and German students, who have earned a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Engineering in physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, electrical engineering or other programs relating to materials/materials properties.
Two special subjects (focusses) exist in Master of Science program "Advanced Materials": "Nanomaterials" and "Biomaterials".
Students choose focus "Nanomaterials" or "Biomaterials" at the end of examination period of 1. semester.
• During 1. semester all students will get an identical strong training in mathematics, natural sciences and materials sciences.
• Strengthened practical training (lab courses) during 2. and 3. semester of both branches to allow students to get familiar with independent lab work early and to improve students´orientation with respect to research done at Ulm University institutes when deciding on a master´s thesis project for 4. semester.
