for the following winter semester
Polymer Materials Science is an interdisciplinary English language Master's programme in the field of polymer science. You will obtain a multifaceted education in one of the central industrial growth sectors. Nowadays, polymer research is performed as a multidisciplinary collaboration among physicists, chemists, and engineers who are seeking new knowledge on making, characterising, processing, and understanding the molecular basis of novel functional materials. Our course programme is research oriented and offers a polymer synthetic or a polymer physical specialisation. It thus qualifies you for work in industry as well as advanced training on the PhD level.
Faculty of Natural Sciences II - Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics
Our faculty, with its two Institutes of Chemistry and Physics, is prominently oriented towards research in the broad area of condensed matter and materials science. About one quarter of the 30 professorships and research groups work in the area of macromolecular science and soft matter. Synthetic polymers are the main topic of the Experimental and Theoretical Polymer Physics Groups, the Macromolecular Chemistry Group, the Physical Chemistry of Polymers Group, the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Group as well as the Materials Science Group. Several other groups at the Max Planck and Fraunhofer Institutes, as well as at the Center of Engineering Sciences and the Life Science Faculties, have activities in the polymer field and are actively contributing to the teaching provided within the Master's programme.
