Excellence awards to the best Personal Programming Projects
As part of their curricula, CMS students need to conceptualize, plan, develop and execute a programming project during the third semester of their study. The goal of this Personal Programming Project is that students obtain hands-on programming knowledge by developing a toolbox or software package, and thus enhance their programming skills which are now essential skill sets for both academia and industry.
The best projects that satisfy very stringent criteria qualify for the Excellence Award. This year, three students have been successful in achieving this award. Congrats to Deepalaxmi Rajagopal, Aytekin Demirci, and Pavan Chandra Vundurthy on obtaining this award.
CHE Ranking: CMS among the top Master's program in Germany
The CMS Master's Program has been rated highly among the Materials Science Master's Program in Germany. The Student-Teacher interaction and the initial orientation for incoming students are some of the key factors that have been emphasized in the rating. Both the Faculty of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering, under which CMS resides, as well as the Materials Science Faculty (Fakultät 5), to which CMS is very closely related, have been rated among the top ten in Germany.
If your application number (18XXX) is NOT on the list, we thank you for your application. Unfortunately, we received a large number of applications, and you could not be selected to attend the course. We wish you good luck for your master studies in another program.
If your application number (18XXX) is on this list, you were selected by the selection committee (pending approval of the student office) to attend the master in Computational Materials Science offered at TU Freiberg, Germany. Non-officially, congratulations, and we are looking forward meeting you in Freiberg.

Dear prospective Students of CMS!
I have exciting news for all CMS students of the upcoming winter term 2017/2018: Over the last months we have been carefully redesigning the whole CMS curriculum. Among others, some of the computational aspects will now be more clearly synchronized across different lectures and tutorials. You - the students of 2017/18 - will also benefit from additional core courses for strengthening your computational skills.
We will now also teach you a broader range of simulation methods. And last but not least: we will now also offer elective courses so that each of you can decide on which subject you would like to put your focus on, which is also pretty helpful for you master's thesis topic.
All details will be published here on this web page soon, so stay tuned!
Prof. S, Sandfeld
Dean of Study

Welcome prospective Students!
Please find herewith necessary information for your first week in October 2014 in Freiberg.
Mr. Shabarish Nunna joined the CMS course in October 2012. His recent movie "A trip down memory lane" received several awards from an internal university competition. We believe that his movie perfectly illustrates an important aspect of the master course CMS.
Being admitted into CMS means more than joining a study program. It means that in addition to receiving academic training for a bright future, you become a member of our university and that you are part of the CMS family.
You can enjoy the movie "A trip down memory lane" at the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_codC1JQ52Y
