Qualification Requirements

Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree. Besides the dedicated material topics (e.g. physical metallurgy, crystallography, materials chemistry, mechanisms of mechanical strength, polymeric materials, ceramics), a qualifying bachelor program must have a strong record in natural science and mathematics. You must demonstrate a sound introduction to solid-state and organic chemistry as well as quantum and solid-state physics. As a rule, a classical program in mechanical engineering or mechatronics does not represent a sufficient preparation, except with an extraordinary focus on materials.

Language Requirements

The following certificates are recognised as proof of your language proficience.

CEFR English
min C1
min C1 Advanced (CAE)
min 6.5
min 225
min 90
min 575
min C2 Proficiency (CPE)
Does the university recognize "other equivalent language certificates"? no information provided by university

Additional information:
English language skills can also be proven by at least six semesters on a Bachelor’s study program in the English language (in this case provide a written confirmation of your home university that the medium of instruction was English), or for Germans and foreigners with German education, by submitting proof of five years of English instruction at school ("Sekundarstufe I und II"), with a grade of at least 4.0 in the last two years.

Application Documents

The following documents are required for your application:

  1. Bachelor and/or diploma degree (certified copy).
  2. A certificate with the cumulative grade of your degree.
  3. Transcript of records, indicating all courses with the grade and the number of credit points and/or the number of hours.
  4. Certification of your English fluency (see language requirements).
  5. A very short letter to explain your motivation for studying a graduate program in material science. This letter must contain a short summary of your previous bachelor studies, i.e. state the total number of credit points earned in your bachelor studies and the total duration of the program, state the number of credit points earned in the following subtopics:
    1. mathematics,
    2. physics and physical chemistry,
    3. general chemistry,
    4. organic chemistry and polymer science,
    5. quantum mechanics,
    6. material science.

If one of the indicated documents is missing the application can not be considered.
