The "Advanced Materials" master programme will be discontinued before the end of the application phase 2022, please do not apply for this study programme.


A new study programme  will be launched, please check this page regularly for any update.

Students interested in the Biomaterials area are encouraged to apply for the closely related Biophysics Master instead, for more information please see here.

Master of Science in Advanced Materials

Master of Science program "Advanced Materials" deals with modern, innovative materials with special properties at atomic/molecular scale and a pronounced potential for application in science, technology and medicine. 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.

Students will acquire competent knowledge in the following areas:

  • Hands-on experience in physics and materials science labs
  • Scientific working methods and current research in the nano-/biomaterials field
  • Scientific competency as well as professional skills in the application range of modern materials science
