  • Special features regarding teaching
    The scientific and engineering principles of Materials Sciences are already taught in the first three semesters by means of a broad, interdisciplinary course. The key focus of this course is a basic knowledge of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, while practical lessons on Materials Science are also held. Then the properties of materials, their production and the characterisation of their microstructure is taught in order to prepare graduates for developing and optimising materials themselves.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    English-language internat. MSc Materials Science with double degree progr.: 3 EU-funded: FAME-MSc (EMJMD), AMIS-MSc (EIT) and AMIR-MSc (EIT), also with Tonji U. (Shanghai); 2 EU-funded strategic partnerships EUCERMAT and IN4SOC; Internat. Doctoral School in Functional Materials and Innovation (IDS-FunMat Inno); German-French Doctoral College (DFDK); internat. MSc Energy Science and Engineering (graduate college excellence initiative of the same name); privileged partnerships with the University of Lyon and University of Bordeaux; Research collaborations with U. Bordeaux, U. Tohoku (Japan) and Tongji U. (Shanghai)
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Università degli Studi di Milano - Bicocca, Mailand, Italien; Institut Polytechnique de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, Frankreich; Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Lyngby, Dänemark; Nanyang Technological University, Singapur; Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan; École Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, Kanada; Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Blacksburg (Virginia), USA; Grenoble INP, Grenoble, Frankreich
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The Materials Science course at TU Darmstadt is characterised by an outstanding pooling of methods into a single site, which allows research into energy, resource efficiency and sustainability to be conducted at the highest level. The use of our own equipment and collaborations with external facilities means that the entire spectrum of required methods is covered. Material Modelling has its own computer cluster and usage rights for mainframes (e.g. HHLR (high performance computer) at TU Darmstadt, CSC Frankfurt, supercomputer at the Forschungszentrum Jülich).
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Participation in the national Excellence Programme through the Graduate School of Energy Science and Engineering. Participation in LOEWE State Excellence Initiative with several focal points (RESPONSE, iNAPO, FLAME).
  • Other special features
    Professorships with links to large-scale research institutions: Fraunhofer Society (2), Helmholtz Centres KIT (2) and GSI Darmstadt (2).

(MatSE)= Materials Science / Engineering (IntDiscip)= very interdisciplinary and thus not classified;
As the ranking is done for the whole subject area, for the single "sub-subjects" it can happen that not all rank groups are represented in all criteria.
