The student will learn how the performance of a material can be designed by taking active measures with respect to the processing parameters. The student will understand how this will allow producing materials with tailor-made properties. The student will be able to apply this knowledge in materials design. A first emphasis of the master program is modeling. The student will learn the available options to simulate the material properties and their evolution and subsequently will also learn to interpret expertly the outcome of these simulations. A second emphasis is on metallic alloys. The student will understand the concepts behind the development of innovative and light metals that are used in constructions where they have to fulfill more stringent safety measures. Both the alloy formation by using a well-designed chemical composition as the processing itself will be considered in detail. Finally, the concept of sustainability will be addressed. On the one hand, the student will acquire knowledge to understand why a material deteriorates in contact with specific environments and how surface engineering will be able to increase its life span. On the other hand, the student will learn to process metals from secondary sources, such as e-waste, and will understand that the final properties of the product in which the metal is used will be on the same level as for metals produced from primary, raw materials.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
