This program in English reflects a scientifically and technologically broad field (Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Medicine and Physics). You will attend lectures and undertake lab research projects on processing techniques and design procedures of new materials, their structures and patterning which are often manufactured with conventional or unconventional lithography technology. Development of new functions is emphasised in material assessment by nanoscale engineering. This program thus falls into the globally dynamic area of nanotechnology with its typically interdisciplinary character.
This course is based on a solid scientific training with courses in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, biology and medicine. Knowledge and skills are provided for the options of nano or biomaterials.
This course is research-oriented and geared to practical application. Gradu-ates are therefore well-prepared for both an industrial career and further academic studies (PhD). Tuition includes instruction from physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, biology and medicine. Specialised knowledge is gained in electives and finally the ability to produce independent original academic research is acquired from writing a master’s thesis.
During your studies you will learn to work in interdisciplinary teams. You will also develop the ability to analyse complex interrelationships with the aim of strengthening your creativity and innovative capacity.
An MSc in Advanced Materials gives graduates the skills to work independently in various research and applied areas of science. The main fields could be for instance research in physics, chemistry or material sciences, the semiconductor industry or the analysis of modern materials. Examples of applications could be sensor technology, surface science and engineering, catalysis or medicine.
A variety of partner universities in the United States and Europe are available for study-abroad segments with full credit transfer into program in Ulm.
Ulm University has from its beginnings been at the forefront of innovation in higher education, noted by such achievements as the first Mathematics in Economics and Physics in Economics programs in Germany, or new forms of fostering industrial-academic cooperation through establishment of the highly successful Science Park. The International Master’s Program in Advanced Materials (started in 2002) offering both Nanomaterials and Biomaterials, was created in this spirit.
Since the 2002/2003 winter semester, Ulm University's Schools of Science, Engineering Sciences and Medicine have offered a new graduate program in Advanced Materials, bringing together qualified students from Germany and abroad. The curriculum is augmented by intensive language courses and intercultural exchange.
Advanced Materials, comprising of Nanomaterials and Biomaterials, involves the design and optimization of materials, achieving new functions and enhance performance. The potential benefits of advanced materials are both pervasive and revolutionary. Nanomaterials and biomaterials influence almost every aspect of our lives. Some of the most dramatic changes are expected in the realms of medicine.
The International Master of Science Program Advanced Materials at the University of Ulm is an interdisciplinary course of studies with emphasis on nanomaterials or biomaterials. It will prepare you well to play an active role in shaping advanced materials in future. It combines the core focus with the necessary foundations in materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering sciences, biology and medicine.
The University of Ulm's graduate Program in Advanced Materials is uniquely designed to meet these demands. In one of Germany's youngest Universities, the program offers thorough scientific and technical training enhanced by well-funded, challenging research opportunities.
The degree course scheme provides a survey of courses and workload during the four semesters of the MSc program "Advanced Materials".
Courses are combined in modules. Module descriptions comprise syllabus, learning objectives, a reading list, information on teaching and learning methods, workloadand assessment for the constituent courses.
