Overview

Materials play an indispensible role in our everyday lives. In order to solve key challenges facing the world such as food and energy shortage, disease, climate change and communications it is essential that economically and environmentally sustainable materials with improved function are developed. Combined with the traditional disciplines, the relatively new research fields of nano- and biotechnology are leading to huge advances in this development. Of course, the discovery of new materials means there is an urgent need for new processes to produce them. Therefore a much greater level of understanding between materials scientists and chemical and biological engineers is required.

The Elite Masters Programme in Advanced Materials and Processes - Master of Science with Honors at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Erlangen Campus) is training the next generation of engineers with exactly this philosophy in mind. Organised and supported by 18 leading university research and teaching institutes, the course connects the two traditional areas of study, Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical and Biological Engineering. First-class Bachelor's (or equivalent) graduates with a background in at least one of these or related subjects are strongly encouraged to apply.

We offer a flexible study plan which enables graduates from one discipline to quickly get to know the fundamentals of the other.
