Elective modules in "Advanced Specialisation" in the subdisciplines of Inorganic Chemis-try, Physical Chemistry, Mineralogy, Pharmaceutical Technology, Physics, Ion Physics, Textile Chemistry and Textile Physics, Civil Engineering and Theoretical Materials Scienc-es: From elective modules 1 - 19 modules covering 20 ECTS-Credits must be selected and passed:
Elective Modules in Advanced Specialisation (20 ECTS-Credits)
Go to the superordinate section
Elective Module 2: Plasma and Thin Film Technology (5 ECTS-Credits, 5 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students have basic theoretical and experimental knowledge of plasma physics, diag-nosis and technology, can deal with the resp. plasma apparatus and know about plas-ma technology application in materials and nano-sciences. They learn how to calculate functional thin film systems, get to know different deposition techniques and control the material properties of the produced product.
Elective Module 3: Materials Analysis (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students acquire detailed knowledge and practical experience with modern materials analytical methods, their optimal areas of application and limits.
Elective Module 4: High Pressure Synthesis and Processes (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students master high pressure methods as a synthesis method for advanced materials.
Elective Module 8: Degradation of Materials and Analysis of Damage (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students learn about central issues of material engineering in relation to the durability of materials and damage analysis for determining and describing underlying damage mechanisms. The students are able to model and simulate mechanically-, chemically- and thermally-induced damaging processes and to validate the models and results won with experimental methods.
Elective Module 10: Colour Agents - Additives (5 ECTS-Credits, 3 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students get basic theoretical knowledge on polymer additives and colourants as well as experimental knowledge on technology of fibre polymers, structures won from them, their characterization and modification, processing techniques and material characterisation.
Elective Module 14: Physical-Chemical Mineralogy (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Imparting of physical and thermodynamic aspects of crystalline phases
Elective Module 18: Interface and Materials Analysis (2.5 ECTS-Credits, 2 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge about the application of modern techniques of interface and materials analysis for technically relevant issues.
To test and apply the acquired knowledge and skills or for orientation on the conditions of professional practice and for acquiring additional competences resp. an internship covering 5 ECTS-Credits (or 120 hours resp.) is passed. The internship must be passed in industrial businesses in materials science or in official institutions. Before starting the internship it must be approved by the Director of Studies. The institution must attest the duration, scope and contents of the internship. A report about the internhsip must also be written.
Elective Module 19: Internship (5 ECTS-Credits) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: approval by the Director of Studies
Learning Outcome: Students use acquired knowledge and skills in a working environment. Having finished the module, the students know about the conditions of the professional and/or scientific practice.
