What will I learn?
The BSc degree course in Engineering and Materials Science is an interdisciplinary joint study offered by the University of Salzburg and the Technical University of Munich. Thus, it combines the disciplines of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences, and takes a closer look at the ties between competences from the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science and mechanical engineering. The aim of this degree course is to educate outstanding engineers skilled in scientific reasoning, who will be able to link research with development compartments/research with production compartments in various areas of the industry. Graduates have a profound knowledge of methods from several disciplines and are interdisciplinary in demand. On the job, they are able to utilize their comprehensive scientific competences to solve practical problems.

What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
The BSc degree course in Engineering and Materials Scienceis a joint study offered by the University of Salzburg in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich. This combination makes the course unique in Austria. Classical natural sciences (physics, chemistry, mathematics) are linked with machine engineering and an 8-weeks mandatory work placement in the industry, which allows students to establish contacts with the industry at an early stage of their studies. Students enjoy an excellent infrastructure at both locations. Graduates of this BSc course may enroll on an international postgraduate MSc degree course in Chemistry and Physics of Materials at the University of Salzburg, but they also qualify for the postgraduate courses at the Technical University of Munich.
