MSc. Applied Natural Sciences

Informationen

The Master of Applied Natural Sciences at the University of Koblenz-Landau (on the Koblenz Campus) is an interdisciplinary program that enables graduates of Bachelor's programs in applied natural sciences to work in research fields comprising chemistry, physics and material sciences. It combines concepts of chemistry and physics in material science as well as environmental sciences and offers a broad range of electives, as e.g. mathematics, biology, geoscience, economics, and computer science.

 

Material science in a scientific point of view connects the characteristics on the microscopic scale their effects (expected or undesirable) on a macroscopic scale being important for applications. The international Master of Science in Applied Natural Sciences integrates concepts of chemistry and physics and neighbouring sciences, such as environmental sciences, which is of increasing importance in terms of environmental protection. Due to its interdisciplinary and applied approach, the program enables its graduates to synthesize and characterize functional materials, but it is not an engineering program.

 

An international direction of the study program is realized by our international research staff, regular talks of guest lecturers from abroad, and internships that can be undertaken all over the world. All mandatory courses are taught in English. The program can be completed entirely in English. However, German language skills are highly recommended for internships (not required) or later work in regional industry.

Synthesis, characterization and applications of functional materials and environmental sciences Electives allow for setting an individual focus (mathematics, biology, geoscience, economics, and computer science) Lectures will be held in English (choices of electives are thus restricted) Possibility of studying abroad for a semester The Master's programme comprises three semesters of full-time study with a total amount of 90 ECTS. For students with a Bachelor's with 180 ECTS, an additional 30 ECTS (one semester) is offered. Ultimately, a total of 300 ECTS have to be earned.

The master programme provides the qualifications required for a consecutive Ph.D. programme. The programme consists of a compulsory part on solid state physics as well as characterization of functional materials. This gives students a broad knowledge in the field of functional materials (12 ECTS).

Electives (36 ECTS) offer the opportunity to deepen the knowledge in physics and chemistry of functional materials and environmental aspects but also in a broad range of other fields, such as biology, geosciences, mathematics and computer sciences. The practical phase comprises a research project (12 ECTS) and the final Master's thesis (25 ECTS) with a final oral exam (5 ECTS).
