In this graduate programme you will focus on the development and research of new substances, especially polymeric materials. In your undergraduate studies, you have already mastered a great deal of theory, so it is now time to put it into practice. Attention is devoted to the preparation of designs to produce new types of materials in terms of their physical and chemical properties as well as their impact on the environment. But at first there is no need to get your hands dirty; you can learn how to evaluate all potential outputs using computerized modeling and simulation systems featuring state-of-the-art computing technology. When you leave here as a learned expert on any material, including its development and technological uses, you will never have to worry about future employment.
What courses can you look forward to?
- Plastics Technology
- Applied Rheology
- Modeling and Numerics – Methods of Material Analysis
- Rubber Technology
- Smart Materials
- Materials and Design
- Composite Materials
- Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies
- Electromagnetic Properties of Materials
Where can you expect to find a job after your studies?
- in materials research
- as a mechanical engineer
