Study concept

The Advanced Material Analysis programme of TU Bergakademie Freiberg studies the development of advanced materials of all types requires use (and combination) of various instrumental analysis techniques in order to influence the production processes into desired directions and in order to evaluate structure-property relations. Therefore, materials analysis plays a key role not only in research and development but also in their production control.

Based on a Bachelor’s degree in materials science, physics or chemistry the students are prepared for a career in industry as well as in academia. Thereby, the strongly methodological character of the programme will open the door to quite versatile range of industrial fields, from metallurgy to semiconductor industry. In addition the graduates can pursue a career in academic research or research centres.
