Chair of Materials Science and Engineering

The chair of materials science and engineering is concerned with the relationship between the internal structure and the substantial use and production characteristics of metallic materials. The main focus of the work is the change of the micro- and nanostructure due to manufacturing and operational stress. The range of applications extends from materials for mechanical and plant engineering, tool making, automotive and aircraft technology to biomaterials for medical instruments and implants.

30.03.2020 – Teaching activities at the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering in SS20

The summer semester 2020 will take place and all courses and examinations will be carried out if in any way possible. The courses of the Chair of Materials and Engineering are offered in the SS20 in digital form or as self-study units. Due to the short preparation time and the large number of our courses, we are currently trying to find quickly viable solutions. We will offer a mixture of different learning methods for the different courses, and we will partly change the teaching content a little. We are in progress now to find suitable methods.

The labs “Praktikum” in Materials Science will also take place in digital form.

All events are carried out via Moodle.

We will offer consultation hours by phone or video regularly, we will set up chats and forums and actively support you in this unusual way of studying.

We are currently creating and revising the course rooms in Moodle. We will let you know when a classroom is ready and you can start looking around.

13.03.2020 - All exams are cancelled. This is also the case for Materials Science I & II on 16.03.2020. Further information on the current situation can be found here COVID19-UDE
15.01.2020 - Bachelor and Master theses on various topics are currently available. If you are interested, please contact the scientific staff of the chair.
