About the programme
The elite Masters course Advanced Materials and Processes (MAP) is training the next generation of engineers with exactly this philosophy in mind. Organised and supported by ten leading university research and teaching chairs, the course connects the two traditional areas of study, materials science and chemical/biological engineering. First-class graduates with a background in at least one of these or related subjects are strongly encouraged to apply.
They offer a flexible study plan which enables graduates from one discipline to quickly get to know the foundations of the other. The core of the course then considers the key materials and process engineering topics in four focal areas: nanotechnology, biomaterials, advanced processes and computation. Alongside lectures, students have the opportunity to build up significant contact with research groups, firstly through four short projects and then during a 6-month full-time research project. Erlangen and its surrounding region is a well-known centre for world-class research in the area of advanced materials.
