Master Programme in Materials Engineering

120 Credits, Programme, master's level
This is a truly world class education in Material Science and Engineering. The over all goal of the program is to educate only the very best students to a level where they can either continue and get a PhD-degree or seek prestigious employment anywhere in the world.

A single university can´t fulfill the high ambitions of this programme, instead several universities collaborate to give you the best possible education. You will spend at least one semester at one of the following universities: UdS Saarbrücken (Germany), UL Nancy (France), UPC Barcelona (Spain), MUL Leoben (Austria) or UNIPD Padua (Italy). In addition to a world class education in material science and engineering you will gain a rich culture experience and a wide network with students from all over the world. The education covers a wide range of aspects within material science.


The courses during the first year will cover basic areas such as structure and properties of materials. The basic courses are then complemented with your choice of more specialization. Examples of such courses are Nanotechnology and Aerospace materials. You also be given the opportunity to excel in the experimental techniques used within material science. During the second year you will in a very practical manner train your skills to work as an engineer or scientist. You will be doing two major projects which are based on subprojects on on-going university research or product development in collaboration with our industrial partners. All of our industrial partners have a high degree of materials development as part of their core activities which makes your contribution very valuable.

Career opportunities

The program will give you excellent job opportunities all over the globe when you can offer expertise in Materials Science and Engineering combined with language skills and cultural know-how from several European universities and companies.
