Learning outcomes

Knowledge and Understanding
On completion of the programme the student shall demonstrate:

  • knowledge and understanding of materials science, including both an overview of the field and specialised knowledge in certain areas of the field as well as insight into current research and development work
  • specialised methodological knowledge used in materials science
  • knowledge and understanding of how to apply mathematical and numerical methods to solve problems within the field of materials science

Competence and skills
On completion of the programme the student shall demonstrate:

  • the ability to integrate knowledge and analyse, assess and deal with complex phenomena, issues and situations even with limited information
  • the ability to identify and formulate issues autonomously as well as to plan and, using appropriate methods, undertake advanced tasks within predetermined time frames
  • the ability in speech and writing to report clearly and discuss his or her conclusions and the knowledge and arguments on which they are based in dialogue with different audiences
  • the skills required for participation in research and development work or employment in some other qualified capacity
  • the ability to formulate physical problems in mathematical terms and solve the resulting equations using suitable mathematical software

Judgement and approach
On completion of the programme the student shall demonstrate:

  • the ability, within the area of materials science, to make assessments informed by relevant disciplinary, social and ethical issues and also to demonstrate awareness of ethical aspects of research and development work
  • insight into the possibilities and limitations of research, its role in society and the responsibility of the individual for how it is used,
  • the ability to identify the personal need for further knowledge and take responsibility for his or her ongoing learning
  • the ability to work systematically and to critically evaluate results from modeling using mathematical software
  • ability to critically evaluate the limits of validity of different computational and physical models within materials science
