Educational activity and employability of graduates students

The Master study program “Materials Science” is interdisciplinary and research-oriented. The program is designed in cooperation with the National Institue of Chemistry and the Jožef Stefan Institute in accordance with excellent personnel and research conditions in the fields of physics and chemistry of materials, characterization of materials, as well as materials technologies and development of innovative products and services at all partner institutions. It is intended for students who want to acquire top competencies and knowledge in the fields of understanding and development of various new types of functional materials, with an emphasis on environmental and energy applications.

Conditions for enrollment and transitions between years

On the study program Material Science can be enrolled students who are completed the 1st level program in the scope of at least 180 ECTS in the field of Natural sciences and engineering in Slovenia (Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials, Materials and Technology, Environment, Construction etc.).
For the transition from the first to the second year, students must select at least 48 ECTS from the exams passed.

Program

In academic year 2018/2019, we introduced the Master Program “Material Science”, which is interdisciplinary and research oriented. The program is designed in cooperation with the Chemical Institute and the Jožef Stefan Institute in accordance with good personnel and research conditions in the fields of materials physics and chemistry, characterization of materials, as well as materials technologies and the development of innovative products and services, including the protection of intellectual property.
