Overview

MSc in Materials Science programme develops research skills, deep theoretical and experimental knowledge of material composition and improvement of their characteristics, knowledge of methodology and technique for technological measurements of materials, processing and analysis of experimental results, knowledge of application of high technologies (micro- and nanotechnologies) in materials science. The programme combines fundamental and engineering studies, and enables the graduates to create and apply functional materials and technologies of their production.
The Master + model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.
