What will I learn?

Innovations in science, technology and medicine, including their translation into industrial applications, call for novel materials whose performance capabilities require unprecedented material concepts. The MSc degree course in Science and Technology of Materials is an interdisciplinary joint study offered by the University of Salzburg (PLUS) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). This Masters course focusses on the production, the characterization and the knowledge-based development of structural and functional materials in the laboratory and the nature. The importance of material cycles and resource efficiencies shall be conveyed and solutions to the ensuing challenges for science and technology shall be developed in an interdisciplinary way.

Which career opportunities do I have?

The interdisciplinary nature of the Masters course Science and Technology of Materials gives graduates a broad spectrum of possible careers, ranging from working within the field of Materials Science/Engineering to working in Service Industries and Management.

Exemplary Career directions could be in:
• chemical industry and construction engineering
• medical engineering and diagnostics,
• energy and environment
• electronics
• automotive and aviation industry
• academic research and development.

Why Salzburg?

The Masters program at the University of Salzburg offers a unique learning environment with an excellent student-teacher ratio. This is  ideally suited to help students gain an excellent understanding of theory and experiments. The interdisciplinary team of lecturers offers a large amount of practical and research oriented laboratory courses, which gives students important time in the laboratory to gain hands on experience in the use of modern instruments and analytical methods. The city of Salzburg is a hotspot of cultural activity with the surrounding mountains and lakes presenting  many opportunities  for sport and nature lovers, making it a unique environment to study and live.

How is the course structured?

The Masters Science and Technology of Materials curriculum is made up of lectures, calculation exercises, lab courses and seminars. Study locations are Salzburg (PLUS) and Munich (TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering and TUM Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering) or Straubing (TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability) depending on the personal substantive focus at the TUM.

    During games when there are no fans in local football stadiums, deep acoustic insights into the inner workings of coaches can clearly be heard in TV broadcasts, due to the lack of background noise.Nevertheless, emotional outbursts and arguments among players and coaches have decreased considerably overall, in corona-related “behind closed door matches". Salzburg researchers calculated this using the example of games at FC Red Bull Salzburg. In contrast, more goals were scored across Austria.

    The new edition of the journal for practical philosophy is now online, with its finger on the pulse is also takes into account one topic that is shaping us like no other:the Corona pandemic. It is one of the two main focuses of the issue and its considerable scope not only reflects the importance of this topic, but also the real need to reflect philosophically and ethically on the diverse consequences of this pandemic.
    With the PLUS Talk, a new form of communication was introduced to the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg in 2020. Within the framework of this format members of the rectorate discuss certain key issues with employees of the PLUS, students and public representatives. The discussions take place LIVE and offer participants the opportunity to ask questions on current topics.
    After talks with the ministry and intensive consultation with the deans, the rectorate of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg has decided that exams should generally only be conducted online at the moment. The following points apply here:
    INTERDISCIPLINARY CONGRESS under the leadership of Reinhard Heinisch, Reinhard Klaushofer, Christoph Kühberger and Margit Reiter
    10 am /Online-Matinee with lecture and discussion „Artes“ series with Robert Brennan and Wolf-Dietrich Löhr.
    As part of the series „MUSIC & MEDICINE“ the cooperation focus group science and culture is organising another online lecture on the 3rd February 2021.
    The Law Academy at the University of Salzburg is offering three online seminars in January 2021 on the topics of an update to competition law (antitrust law and UWG) on Friday, 15 January 2021, an update to company law on Friday, 22 January 2021 and an update to warranty law on Friday, 29th January 2021.
