About this course

This degree programme is unique, because it integrated both multi-scale simulation techniques and state-of-the-art experimental analysis processes and promotes hands-on application of the acquired skills in a project-focused team within an interdisciplinary field.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields

  • Multi-scale material modelling
  • Physical and mechanical material properties
  • Microstructure-property relationships
  • Numerical modelling
  • Material processing and characterisation
  • Light elements in metallic alloys
  • Materials for aviation and aerospace applications
