Course description

Materials have always been crucial for technological advancements. From the Stone Age, through the Bronze and Iron Ages, to the Modern Age, new materials with superior properties have defined human progress. These advancements impact not just technology, but also economic, ecological, and social development. Today, we face significant challenges like generating power from renewable sources, advancing e-mobility, and reducing CO2 emissions. The main hurdle in these areas is the lack of materials that meet the necessary technological demands. In study programs like Materials Science and Engineering, students explore these issues. They learn about developing new materials that can overcome current limitations. This knowledge is essential for driving future innovations and addressing the pressing needs of our time.
