Course description

In your first year of the Master’s in Materials Science program, you will build on the foundational knowledge from your Bachelor’s degree. You will also develop expertise in two specialized areas, keeping pace with the latest research. During the second year, you will undertake a "Master Thesis" as part of a materials science research team. The University of Stuttgart's excellent infrastructure supports a wide range of specialization fields. This degree opens doors to various careers, from material selection and counseling to quality management. It equips you to work independently in both industrial and public research settings.

Application Requirements

Language Requirements

CEFR C1
IELTS 6.5
Cambridge (CAE) No information
TOEFL IBT 90

In order to study you must show proof that you have advanced English skills of at least level C1. You will need either: one of the following tests with the indicated results: TOEFL PBT: 575 points; TOEFL CBT 225 points; TOEFL iBT 90 points; IELTS mind. band 6.5; Cambridge ESOL CAE/CPE or at least six semesters on a Bachelor’s study program in the English language. In this case provide a written confirmation of your home university that the medium of instruction was English or Germans and foreigners with German education: the proof of five years of English instruction at school ("Sekundarstufe I und II"), with a grade of at least 4.0 in the last two years, is sufficient.

Qualification Requirements

As a consecutive program for graduate students, the Master Courses in Material Science require an approriate Bachelor degree. Beside the dedicated material topics (e.g. physical metallurgy, crystallography, materials chemistry, mechanisms of mechanical strength, polymeric materials, ceramics), a qualifying bachelor program must have a strong record in natural science and mathematics. You must demonstrate a sound introduction to solid state and organic chemistry as well as quantum and solid state physics. As a rule, a classical program in Mechanical Engineering or Mechantronics does not represent a sufficient preparation, except with an extraordinary focus on materials.

Document Requirements

Bachelor and /or diploma degree (certified copy) Certificate with the cumulative grade of your degree Transcript of records, indicating all courses with the grade and the number of credit points and /or the number of hours. Certification of your English fluency (see above). A very short letter to explain your motivation for studying a graduate program in material science. This letter must contain a short summary of your previous bachelor studies, i.e. state the total number of credit points earned in your Bachelor studies and the total duration of the program, state the number of credit points earned in the following subtopics: mathematics, physics and physical chemistry general chemistry organic chemistry and polymer science quantum mechanics material science
