Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Interdisciplinary approach: In teaching, bridges are built between fundamentals and applications; non-university research institutions are involved in teaching; All material classes are represented, i.e. Metals, ceramics, plastics, glass and functional materials.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Partnerships with many international universities. Organisation of joint degree courses (AMASE, EEIGM); Numerous partnerships with international industrial companies.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Université de Lorraine (Frankreich), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Barcelona (Spanien), Luleå tekniska universitet (Schweden)
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Universität des Saarlandes has a commercial atom probe. This device is used in Materials Science for exact mapping of element distribution by means of an atomic resolution. In addition, three-dimensional reconstruction of the atomic distribution is possible. Furthermore, Universität des Saarlandes has an FIB (Focused Ion Beam), with which the students can analyse and manipulate the surface structure at molecular level. There is also a transmission electron microscope (TEM).
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Strong links between the university department and the non-university research institutes on campus (Fraunhofer IZFP, Leibniz INM, etc.)
  • Support for founders
    Inclusion of the start-up course of the contact office for knowledge and technology transfer into the range of courses (option)
  • Other special features
    Variety of specialisation options in the different Master's courses: The Master's degree in Materials Science is primarily a research-based degree course whereas the Materials Engineering Master's is primarily practice-oriented. - The AMASE postgraduate course is offered in Germany, Spain, France and Sweden and is completed with a double Master's degree. The EEIGM Master's degree course also offers the possibility of completing a double Master's degree.
