This degree programme is part of the collaboration between the University of Graz and Graz University of Technology (NAWI Graz), and provides a comprehensive introduction to materials and their characteristics, composition, function and diverse applications in practically every sphere of modern engineering and technology.
Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
You should have an interest in the interdisciplinary aspects of materials and their uses, for instance in the energy and transport sectors, medical technology, sensor technology or analytics. You must also have already completed a bachelor’s degree in the physical or engineering sciences, such as physics, chemistry, mechanical or process engineering, environmental systems sciences or electrical engineering.
Advanced Materials Science at the University of Graz
You will learn about various aspects of the production, characterisation, simulation and applications of materials, both from a theoretical perspective and through extensive practical laboratory work. You can choose between three areas of specialisation: metals and ceramics, semiconductor processing and nanotechnology, or biobased materials.
Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences
The Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences allows you to develop your own research interests further and to perfect your methodological skills. You will work independently to investigate academic questions and contribute to the development of knowledge and innovation in your subject area.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a graduate of this programme you will be particularly well-qualified to work in industrial research and development (e.g. materials, chemical or semiconductor industries), in high-tech sectors such as sustainable technologies, process innovation and information technology, or in research and teaching at universities and other research institutes or public institutions.
For admission to the programme you must have already completed a bachelor’s degree in the physical or engineering sciences, such as physics, chemistry, mechanical or process engineering, environmental systems sciences or electrical engineering.
