The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.
The field of materials science combines disciplines, including engineering, chemistry, biochemistry and other technologies, in order to research and develop new materials for use in manufacturing. This growing field prepares students to work towards solving problems on a global scale as natural resources become threatened.

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016
As global and EU populations increase along with well-being and welfare, consumption per capita is also increasing. In the EU especially, consumption has outpaced production, particularly with respect to the more complicated, resource-intensive technologies and products that have become part of daily life. As a result, the importance of recycling and the circular economy will continue to increase in order to diversify our sources of supply and meet our needs.
