Praveen Hiremath fron India (graduated in 2016)
"The Masters Program in CMS at TUBAF has the goal to provide students with the broad understanding of (multiscale) material modelling methods. The study of material modelling also entails acquiring very good programming skills. The program is very well structured so that students can comprehend the importance of multiscale material modelling and be able to choose a particular time and length scale or bridge the gap between different time and length scales. The experienced TUBAF professors who are researchers as well, assist the students to develop a great deal of skills that are imperative in their future endeavours. After the completion of the course, it is possible to pursue Ph.D. degree leading into research career or land a job based on the modelling method one is skilled in.
Aforementioned career choices, history and tranquillity of Freiberg, great reputation of TUBAF have proved my decision to join CMS right. I have really had a wonderful experience studying here".
Ala Konrad Hijazi from Libanon (graduated in 2015)
"Computational Materials Science, in Freiberg, is a combination of Solid Mechanics, Molecular Dynamics and Quantum Mechanics. The most interesting part for me was getting familiar with material defects at different length scales. Besides, one can improve his skills in programming with different languages depending on the topic. By the variety of topics, one can choose to go deep into research, or prepare himself to work in an engineering company."
Guoxiang Zu from China (graduated in 2015)
"I have a great time here. I encounter good and nice professors and friendly classmates. I gained knowledge and experience of doing research efficiently. The nine square kilometers region gathers a lot of intelligent people, I learned a lot here. Freiberg gives me the courage and confidence to face bigger challenge. Thanks, TU Freiberg! See you in the future!"
Shweta Pandey from India (graduated in 2014)
"CMS is a master's program at TU Freiberg which provides a unique combination of courses and a league of brilliant professors and lecturers for guidance. The combination of subjects ranging from micro-level physics to macro-level mechanics gives the student a detailed insight into each level of multi-scale modelling and in-turn paves the way to pursue one's own interests.
Having completed CMS successfully, I am about to start my career in the automotive industry as an application engineer. The Institute for Mechanics and Fluiddynamics has research collaborations with major players in the automotive industry, research institutes and many more. This gives the student a plethora of opportunities to pursue their interests in research as well as in the industries.
I had the best time as a student at TU Freiberg. With good student-teacher ratios, the students have the opportunity to build good contacts with the professors and other researchers at the university. Freiberg being a quaint old university town, is an amazing place to experience as a student. The international centre of the university is always active and organizes events and trips all year round for international students. Due to these activities organized by the international centre there is a close knit community of international students who remain close even after completing their studies at TU Freiberg".
Kianoosh Taghizadeh Bajgirani from Iran (graduated in 2014)
"CMS at TU Bergakademie Freiberg is a well organized masters program, which bridges between different scales in materials modeling. The major objective of CMS is to model multi-scale transitions in order to understand the micro-based behavior of materials on the macro scale. This is achieved by applying various numerical methods to different scales, which are taught and practiced during the CMS course. I strongly believe that CMS is a unique opportunity to gain profound knowledge in multi-scale modeling field as well as to achieve carrier goals for becoming a multidisciplinary researcher. Finally, I would like to mention that the CMS course improved my skills a lot - not only the scientific ones but also my soft skills".
Vivek Naik Adishankara from India (graduated in 2014)
"This is a course that brings together different approaches taken towards Material Simulations under one roof. These different simulation techniques bring different parties from the industry and academics on the same platform. Each of the simulation approaches has a wide array of applications. When we build bridges between them, as is done in this course, the potential of the simulations is exponentially escalated. Apart from academics, the city has a lot to offer. A nice peaceful delight of a place."
Hardik Kothari from India (graduated in 2014)
"CMS is a uniquely designed masters program which focuses on the subjects of Mechanics, Physics and Informatics. This multidisciplinary master program allowed me to study subjects from the different fields of science. It helped me understand some of the ongoing research in the field of my interest and gave me an opportunity to contribute a little in the field during my master thesis. Freiberg is really nice university town, which is comparatively cheaper and student friendly.
As TU Freiberg is a small university with small number of students, it became possible for me to interact with professors directly. CMS equipped me with the unique set of skills which I want to use in my future carrier in the research field."
Hussein Farahani from Iran (graduated in 2014)
“I found the TU Freiberg a small, historical university, modernized and full of scientific opportunities for a foreign student. The CMS course is well designed which could upgraded me to the most recent knowledge in computational materials science.”
Hareesh Tummala from India (graduated in 2013)
"CMS is a well structured Masters program and intended to help students learn and gain hands-on experience in Multiscale modeling of materials. It is only after finishing CMS, one can understand the importance of the different numerical techniques learned during the course. CMS is one of the toughest courses to finish, unless sufficient time is invested. Time to learn, time to gain (knowledge) and time to experience. Freiberg, being a small city and its easy commute, makes it even easier for student to spend time wisely and concentrate on studies."
Srinivasan Mahendran from India (graduated in 2013)
"The curriculum of the course during the first semester gave me the confidence that I did the right choice. Also the advantage of being enrolled at TUBAF (a small university) which ensures more attention and interaction between students and the professors / staffs of various faculties. It is an unique feature.
These two years of my study was one of the best period of my life and the potential shown by this course helped me to make my carrier in research."
Md. Masud Alam from Bangladesh (graduated in 2013)
“Concerning the faster development of science and technology, Computational Material Science (CMS) offers versatile ways to accommodate new possibilities to flourish human life at a very easy pace. In my Master studies, I have benefited from the breadth of TU Freiberg's syllabi content that has given me a comprehensive exposure to the core areas of CMS and a strong conceptual understanding of the same. As people are now evaluating the need for more reliable and sophisticated, widely encountered, uppermost precision technology to meet up the diverse necessity around the globe, I found Freiberg an excellent place for earning my Master's degree. The state-of-the-art facilities, distinguished faculty and the stimulating research work in the area of simulation offers a promising environment for budding research enthusiasts.”
