About

The Computational Materials Science programme at Malmö University gives you the in-demand skills and academic degree that allow you to work in a wide range of areas associated with materials development and processing.

Overview

During the Computational Materials Science programme at Malmö University you will gain knowledge in advanced programming, materials science and modelling techniques for testing and predicting material properties. Moreover, the programme includes an introduction to experimental characterisation techniques available at state-of-the-art neutron and synchrotron X-ray facilities such as the MAX IV research centre and the forthcoming ESS research centre, both of which are located just outside of Malmö. Such multidisciplinary knowledge and skills are widely sought by industry and academia, which opens up possibilities for work within the fields of design and engineering, or to pursue a future academic career as a PhD student.

This two-year master’s programme prepares students for research studies within computational-based sciences and technology. The courses offered give the students a broad perspective on material behaviours under different conditions, with a special focus on computational modelling of material mechanisms on different length scales. In addition, the programme covers relevant techniques associated with synchrotron light and neutron radiation used for experimental small-scale characterisations of materials. Students develop the ability to use research methods to address materials science-related issues and test their skills through the degree project during the programme’s second year. The degree project will typically be associated with either an ongoing research project or a relevant industry-related project.

A graduate from the programme will have skills requested by the industry to work as an engineer and/or product developer. Material testing is a vital but highly expensive and time-consuming part of product development. Consequently, there is a demand for people with advanced knowledge of how to use computational techniques to construct virtual testing and materials characterisation environments. With its unique and strong focus on modelling and simulation, the Computational Materials Science master’s programme gives students in-demand skillsets that are becoming increasingly relevant for the job market.
