The study of materials is based on the relationship between the properties of a material (which determine its functionality), its structure, and the way that the material is assembled. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and includes subjects from both basic sciences and engineering, and from physics and chemistry.
The Master’s programme in Physics, Materials science from Lund University emphasises application of advanced technologies in materials science. The close proximity to large-scale facilities and excellent materials science research groups provides excellent opportunities for inspiring Master’s thesis research projects.
Materials science is an important field for a variety of areas of science and engineering, and graduates will be qualified for employment in fields ranging from industry to research laboratories in areas such as astrophysics, communciations, life sciences, energy-related materials and at facilities such as the MAX IV laboratory and the European Spallation Source (ESS). Both of these large laboratories require trained staff with a good knowledge of experimental techniques in materials science and physics in general. Graduates of the programme will be well qualified for PhD programmes in Physics and Physical Chemistry.
