We design materials for future applications

The central missions of materials scientists and technologists around the world are the development of novel materials for upcoming applications and the development of energy-efficient technologies for materials production. Some examples of the emerging application fields are the data and energy storage, the aircraft and car construction, and the medical engineering. Also many everyday commodities would not exist without the visions and ideas of materials scientists and technologists.

For the education of materials scientists and materials technologists, Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg offers a unique complementary combination of both fields. The prospective materials scientists and technologists are educated frequently in a close cooperation with industry to become experts for metals, ceramics, composites, electronic materials, and sensors. The Freiberg diploma holders are in great demand by both, research institutes and industry.

Experience the materials expertise at the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg and help to develop the materials of the future. Follow the link to the research topics of the Faculty of Materials Science and Technology.

In 2016, the Freiberg University achieved top position in CHE ranking “Materials Science / Materials Engineering”

In the ranking of the Centre for Universitary Development (CHE) from 2016, the degree programs offered by the Faculty of Materials Science and Technology were rated as outstanding in the section Materials Science / Materials Engineering. The CHE ranking is based on statistical data and student’s opinions. The best rankings were achieved in the categories “Job Market and Relevance for Professional Carrier” and “Study and Education”. The latter category covers the survey on the academic program offered, quality of the supervision, feasibility of the study, and the general conditions of the study.
