The international study program Chemistry of Materials is research-oriented and provides, based on the education in a qualified undergraduate degree program, the ability to work independently in a modern, interdisciplinary field at the interface between chemistry, physics, and materials science. The study program provides extensive knowledge of synthesis, chemistry, and the properties of novel functional materials. The entire spectrum from the molecule via nanoscale materials to the bulk materials will be discussed. A particular focus is given on advanced methods of industrial materials synthesis and chemical processing, such as nanomaterials, thin films, macromolecular materials, glasses and ceramics, and materials for energy. In these fields, both extensive experimental-analytical skills and computer simulation from atomistic to meso- and macroscopic length scale are of particular interest.
For this master's program, you need a subject-specific undergraduate degree (minimum 6 semesters/180 ECTS-Credits) or an equivalent degree in Chemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, or related fields of science that contains modules of at least 60 credits (ECTS) in Chemistry or Physics.
In specific cases, admission on condition(s) might be granted.
The bachelor's final grade (CGPA) must be GOOD or higher (German and US systems).
You need to complete 120 credit hours to successfully obtain this degree. Please check detail of study units at https://www.uni-jena.de/en/msc_chemistry_of_materials
The M.Sc. study program Chemistry of Materials is strongly researched-oriented. The graduates will be primarily employed in companies involved in materials chemistry research and development, but also in quality assurance and control as well as in sustainability assessment facilities. Alternatively (high-performing) graduates can pursue a scientific career and participate in one of the Ph.D. programs of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Due to its modularity and its focus on current research topics, the study program can be designed individually by choosing either an analytical or computational focus.
