What will I learn?
Innovations in science, technology and medicine, including their translation into industrial applications, call for novel materials whose performance capabilities require unprecedented material concepts. The MSc degree course in Science and Technology of Materials is an interdisciplinary joint study offered by the University of Salzburg (PLUS) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). This Masters course focusses on the production, the characterization and the knowledge-based development of structural and functional materials in the laboratory and in nature. The importance of material cycles and resource efficiencies shall be conveyed and solutions to the ensuing challenges for science and technology shall be developed in an interdisciplinary way.
What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
The Masters program at the University of Salzburg offers a unique learning environment with an excellent student-teacher ratio. This is ideally suited to help students gain an excellent understanding of theory and experiments. The interdisciplinary team of lecturers offers a large amount of practical and research oriented laboratory courses, which gives students important time in the laboratory to gain hands-on experience in the use of modern instruments and analytical methods. The city of Salzburg is a hotspot of cultural activity with the surrounding mountains and lakes presenting many opportunities for sport and nature lovers, making it a unique environment to study and live.
Which career opportunities do I have?
The interdisciplinary nature of the Masters course Science and Technology of Materials gives graduates a broad spectrum of possible careers, ranging from working within the field of Materials Science/Engineering to working in Service Industries and Management. Exemplary carrer directions could be in: • chemical industry and construction engineering • medical engineering and diagnostics • energy and environment • electronics • automotive and aviation industry • academic research and development.
