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.
Materials science is an important field for a variety of areas of science and engineering, and graduates will be qualified for employment in fields ranging from industry to research laboratories in areas such as astrophysics, communciations, life sciences, energy-related materials and at facilities such as the MAX IV laboratory and the European Spallation Source (ESS). Both of these large laboratories require trained staff with a good knowledge of experimental techniques in materials science and physics in general. Graduates of the programme will be well qualified for PhD programmes in Physics and Physical Chemistry.

Bachelor s degree of at least 180 credits in physics or the equivalent. The degree must include at least 90 credits in physics. Proficiency in English equivalent to English 6/B from Swedish upper-secondary school.
based on grades awarded for previous academic courses, particularly qualifying courses, and a statement of purpose for the application (from the applicant s Summary sheet ).
English language requirements
Most of Lund University’s programmes require English Level 6 (unless otherwise stated under “Entry requirements”). This is the equivalent of an overall IELTS score of 6.5 or a TOEFL score of 90. There are several ways to prove your English language proficiency – check which proof is accepted at the University Admissions in Sweden website. All students must prove they meet English language requirements by the deadline, in order to be considered for admission.
