Materials are what make up everything around us and their properties are critical to the performance of any system or device where they are used. Almost every aspect of modern society is touched by a technology made possible by advances in materials. For example, the internet and mobile phones would not be possible without optical fibres and semiconductors. The study of materials is based on the relationship between the properties of a material (which determine its functionality), its structure, and the way that the material is assembled. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and includes subjects from both basic sciences and engineering, and from physics and chemistry.

The Master s programme in Materials Science is a flexible and interdisciplinary programme for postgraduate students with a strong interest in learning about how important properties of materials depend upon the materials structure and constituents. The characterisation of materials by spectroscopy, diffraction and microscopy is an important dimension in the programme, and the new materials science facilities - the MAX IV synchrotron radiation laboratory and the planned European Spallation Source (ESS) for neutronbased research - are in focus.

It is possible to combine theoretical or computational studies with experimental approaches within the programme. The goal of the Master s programme is to produce well-rounded materials scientists who are able to apply the principles of materials science for carrying out engineering and/or research projects. The programme emphasises application of advanced technologies in materials science. The close proximity to large-scale facilities and excellent materials science research groups provides excellent opportunities for inspiring Master s thesis research projects.

Career prospects

Materials science is an important field for a variety of areas of science and engineering, and graduates will be qualified for employme

Master Programme in Physics, Nanoscience

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Lund University

Programme website: Master Programme in Physics, Nanoscience

On the nanometre scale, the distinction between disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology becomes less clear. Characteristic for nanotechnology is therefore a high degree of interdisciplinarity. The Nanoscience programme at Lund University has its scientific base in a physics description of nanoscale phenomena, but in addition to nanophysics you can, depending on your background and interests, choose to specialise in fields such as nanoelectronics, materials science or biophysics.

The programme is part of the Nanometer Structure Consortium, one of the world s leading nanoscience research centres. You will interact with cutting-edge research throughout the programme, starting in the first semester and building up to the Master s project. Moreover, by taking advantage of the wealth of courses offered by Lund University, you will be able to explore the cross-disciplinary nature of nanoscience. 

Career prospects

There is an increasing demand worldwide for people knowledgeable in nanotechnology. Nanoscientists are not only needed in specialised nanotechnology companies but also in more traditional industries, with more and more nanotechnology being incorporated into products. Thanks to the close connection to world-class research, the Master's programme also provides excellent preparation for doctoral studies and an academic career.

Master Programme in Climate Sensitive Urban Planning and Building

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Luleå University of Technology

Programme website: Master Programme in Climate Sensitive Urban Planning and Building

Climate conditions, seasonal variations and climate change put increasing demands on the planning and design of sustainable urban developments. Precipitation, sun, wind, darkness, light, cold and heat are all important climatic elements. These need to be carefully considered in order to create environments that stimulate outdoor living and activities.
