About

The Materials Science programme of Eötvös Loránd University is an interdisciplinary M.S. program aimed at providing a rigorous education in materials science and the fundamental physics and chemistry that underlie this discipline.

Overview

The Materials Science programme of Eötvös Loránd University programme offers an overview of the types of materials; their chemical and physical structures; and properties.

The successful applicant must have a BSc. degree in Chemistry, in Chemical and Environmental Process Engineering, in Physics, in Materials Engineering or in any similar degree including reasonable amount of natural science (at least 40 ECTS) in the curriculum.

Interest in new materials (e.g. superconductor) and new technology (e.g. space technology), as well as a better understanding of the behavior of materials in the design of structures (such as automobiles and aircraft, plant processing equipment, electronic devices, biomedical devices, etc.) have increased the need for people trained in science of materials.

The M.S. program is based on lectures, seminars and practical laboratories in advanced materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, biomaterials and their composites. The M.S. program introduces the micro- and nanotechnology as well as electronic, magnetic and other functional materials. The compulsory basic courses provide the solid framework of the program; the semi-optional and special lecture courses give the basis of the specialization and their wide choice results in the flexibility of the program.

Strength of program

The Materials Science program is strongly committed to interdisciplinary studies with a focus on physics and chemistry. The high standard of training is guaranteed by the highly qualified teachers and scientists. The education is supported by modern infrastructure and well equipped laboratories. The library of the Faculty contains several thousand books and journals. In addition to the high level of theoretical training, the joint research and development projects offer opportunities for the students to obtain up-to-date practical knowledge and experience to the students.
