Study programme syllabus for
MAMAS - MSc PROGR IN ADVANCED MATERIALS Academic year: 2004/2005


The programme Advanced Materials reflects the scientifically and technologically broad field of materials science. Scientists and more applied engineers in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental material development to application of materials technology in products and processes. Typically the materials engineer deals with functional materials, lightweight materials, materials for high temperaturee and aggressive environments, semiconductors, biomaterials, liquid crystals and the like. Typically, the materials engineer interferes with physics, chemistry, solid mechanics etc., but he is also confronted with applied engineering like developing new products or making processes more effective, cost competitive and reliable. Based on the vast research activities at Chalmers the present programme contains a basic part with more fundamental subjects followed by various possibilities to specialisation.

Like other master programmes at Chalmers, this programme consists of 60 credit points in total (40 credit points - a full academic year - with compulsory and elective taught courses, followed by thesis work - 20 credit points - nominally 5 months). The compulsory part takes up 24 credit points, while the elective part consists of 16 credit points. The elective part of the programme encompasses three main lines of specialiasation: A) Basic and aplied materials science & engineering B) Electronic materials technology C) Biomaterials

However, an option is given to each student to extend the programme in ADVANCED MATERIALS to 80 credit points (two full years). The extension will be filled with elective courses or project work.
