Energy efficiency and sustainable energy supply are more important than ever. They also require new ways of material development for energy conversion and storage. In particular, the research and control of fundamental physical and chemical processes and mechanisms of action, often on an atomic scale, is a prerequisite for technological breakthroughs and the new Master’s program in Energy and Materials Physics offers the unique opportunity to receive an in-depth education in material physics and material chemistry of regenerative energy technologies.
Special study focuses are photovoltaics, batteries, fuel cells and solid-state sensors as well as the required solid-state physical basics. Collaboration in research projects within the framework of research internships and master theses prepares students for activities in industrial and university research. Materials science, economics and legal studies with a close connection to the core topic of energy broaden the education and qualify the students for versatile activities in industry and authorities.
