Compulsory Module 5: Mechanical Properties (5 ECTS-Credits, 3 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students are able to characterise the structure and micro-structure of materials and the resulting mechanical properties. Moreover, they learn about the underlying chemical and physical processes in the production process and the resulting possibilities of a targeted manipulation of mechanical material behaviour. They are able to apply experimental methods for recording microstructures and determining mechanical parameters.
Compulsory Module 8: Spectroscopy and Group Theory (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students master the symmetry analysis of problems and acquire a deeper understanding of matter and solid state properties and spectroscopies (IR, optical spectroscopy, etc.).
Compulsory Module 10: Solids: Basic Concepts and Technology (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students understand the interconnections between solid state material structure, possible excitations of these structures and the macroscopic material properties. The learn fundamental technologies for making semi-conductor building elements and acquire knowledge of magnetic and other materials with electron correlation. Students then apply their theoretic knowledge in practice and practice the experimental determination of the listed material properties. Students are familiar with the chemical and structural properties of amorphous and polymer materials, understand the theoretic concepts for describing non-crystalline solids and know the fundamentals of use in technical engineering.
Presentation and defense of own's own Master's Thesis (Defensio) within the scope of a 20-minute scientific presentation and a subsequent scientific discussion and questioning by a examination board.
Compulsory Module 12: Master's Thesis Defense (Defensio) (2.5 ECTS-Credits) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: successful evaluation of the required modules and the Master's Thesis
Learning Outcome: Students present and defend their Master's Thesis within the scope of a scientific presentation.
