Chemistry and Physics of Functional Materials (Master of Science)

The master course "Chemistry and Physics of Functional Materials" enables graduates of the bachelor program "Applied Natural Sciences" and similar study courses of other faculties at German and international universities to work in research in the fields of chemistry, physics and material sciences. The program addresses students with interest in doing research with functional materials. Based on the chemical and physical knowledge of the bachelor program a more comprehensive understanding of the relations between composition and structure of the materials on the one hand and their chemical and physical characteristics on the other hand is given. The master program provides the qualifications required for a consequent Ph.D. program or enables the graduates to take up responsible positions in research and development in industry or research institutes.
