High-quality aircraft-, vehicle- or engine parts, hard-wearing sports equipment, long-lasting and perfectly-shaped consumer goods all beg the same question: Which materials or combinations of materials are the most suitable? How can such products be produced and their quality and characteristics reliably checked? These are the questions which students of this degree programme must answer. Because choosing the right material is essential for all products: the function, safety, design and longevity are all determined by them. In this practice-orientated and researchfocused degree programme students put their knowledge of chemistry and physics into practice and develop metals, composites or plastics and their processing processes further.
