Courses

The multidisciplinary programme Materials Science & Engineering comprises 2 years of study in which you will need to amass a total of 120 EC.

YEAR 1

In the first year you will gather 60 EC, spread out over courses in three categories: 

Complementing these courses, a number of joint activities are offered for all students enrolled in this multidisciplinary programme, such as colloquia, excursions to companies, and informal meetings. 

YEAR 2

The second year of the multidisciplinary programme Materials Science & Engineering consists of a compulsory internship (20 EC) and your master's assignment (40 EC). During the internship, you will learn how to apply the knowledge acquired in the first year in a corporate or institutional environment. Your master’s assignment will get you working independently on the solution of either a practical challenge from business or industry, or on a theoretical (open) question.
