Application Requirements

Language Requirements

Cambridge (CAE) No information

Applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of a sufficient knowledge of English corresponding to level B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Currently, equivalences to B2 in terms of one of internationally recognized test methods (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS) are as follows: TOEFL TOEFL (paper-based) score of at least 550 or TOEFL TOEFL (computer-based) score of at least 213 or TOEFL TOEFL (internet-based) score of at least 80 or IELTS-Overall Band Score of at least 6.5 (out of 9)

Qualification Requirements

For admission to the Master’s program in Materials Science & Engineering, a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in the fields of materials science, physics, chemistry, or materials science and engineering is required. A degree in a related discipline might be deemed equivalent by the examination board, subject to evaluation of the documents submitted by the applicant. In the majority of cases a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering does not provide sufficient knowledge in the scientific foundations for Materials Science. All applicants have to submit proof of having obtained at least 12 ECTS credits in Materials Science, 12 ECTS credits in Physics and 18 ECTS credits from Engineering, Chemistry or Mathematics. To evaluate if you fulfill this requirement, you have to list (including a summary of contents) each lecture course in the evaluation form, which you have to submit as part of your application documents. Note: Applicants who graduated from the University of Augsburg do not have to submit this form.
