The German-language Master’s programme Materials Chemistry provides you with the skills to develop the brainstorming, synthesis, chracterisation and development processes of these efficient and ressource-saving high-tech materials on multiple levels. It therefore perfectly meets the growing demand of companies in the chemical industry for graduates with training in goal oriented bottom-up design and the synthesis of functional materials, including their computer-aided modelling and modern analytical characterisation methods. Augsburg’s facilities, lecture halls and laboratories are designed to meet state-of-the-art standards. Additionally, an extremely favourable supervision ratio (students per scientist) guarantees optimal development opportunities.
