Materials - Materials Science

Materials science is an interdisciplinary field which incorporates elements of several scientific disciplines, such as applied physics, chemistry and engineering. It focuses on synthesis, characterization and processing of existing and novel materials. Many of the modern technological challenges that are currently faced by the humanity, for example green energy production and storage, are related to the limitations of existing materials and technologies. Therefore breakthroughs in the field of materials science are expected to have a tremendous impact on the future technologies.

The interdisciplinary bachelor and master program "Materials Science and Technology" at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena is organized by several institutes of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, the Faculty of Chemistry and Geoscience, and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, which are all involved in the education of our students.
