The University of Freiburg's Master of Science in Sustainable Materials degree program is a consecutive and research-oriented program designed to be completed in four semesters. The Master of Science in Sustainable Materials degree program provides graduates of bachelor's programs in natural sciences, materials sciences, and microsystems engineering with advanced qualifications in the sustainable development and application of modern multifunctional materials and technologies providing high resource, environmental, and energy efficiency. The program is based on interdisciplinary and interfaculty teaching and research and breaches the gap between materials science, earth and environmental sciences, and engineering.

Students of the program choose a specialization in one of four areas:

  • Polymer Sciences (with a bilingual and a binational version/specialization)
    The Polymer Sciences version/specialization focuses on selected areas of materials and polymer sciences that provide a solid grounding in the various further areas of the physical and chemical properties of materials as well as technologies and applications involving polymers.
    Students may elect to receive advanced training in materials science, earth and environmental sciences, or engineering.
  • Functional Materials
    The Functional Materials specialization focuses on the study and development of inorganic and organic functional materials in the areas of sustainable energy production (regenerative energies) and technologies providing high resource, enviornmental, and energy efficiency.
  • Crystalline Materials
    The Master of Science Sustainable Materials at the University of Freiburg is a consecutive and research-oriented master program that can be completed in four semesters. Crystalline Materials are the fundamental building blocks of modern materials science and technology. The solid state of a large variety of materials is a crystalline state. The topics of this course are the understanding of the structure and the formation of the crystalline state, as well as the related technology. The study of crystalline materials is covered by many disciplines and the occupational area is broad. Chemistry, physics, mathematics, and engineering science are part of this master course. The student will learn the basics of crystal growth, material characterization, crystallography, and semiconductor technology. Events on sustainability of materials and processing complete the degree program.

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

Central Student Advising Office


The central student advisory service - the Central Student Advising Office (ZSB) provides information and advice on all questions that may arise prior to, at the beginning of, and during a course of study. If you are seeking subject-specific advice in addition to this, you can also contact the respective subject academic advisor.
