Materials Physics and Technology
The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Materials Physics & Technology (MatPhy&Tech) is a research oriented post-graduate program that operates under the auspices of the School of Physics, A.U.Th. The interdisciplinary research field of MatPhy&Tech, that has grown rapidly worldwide over the past twenty years, is based on innovations hybridizing metallurgy, ceramics, solid-state physics, chemistry and biotechnology. In particular, it focuses on the development of novel materials with improved properties for the next generation of high-tech applications. It studies the basic properties of a wide range of materials, with emphasis on methods of growth and processing, the relationships between atomic structure, microstructure and macroscopic properties, and the performance of materials. The materials studied in the MSc Program curriculum include: electronic materials for applications in micro-, and optoelectronics, nanomaterials, biomaterials, ceramics, metals, magnetic materials, polymers and composites.
