Fields of Activity

The teaching in the master's program is given by the professors of the Institute for Materials Science in Kiel and their assistance. By the fast growth of the institute, today 10 chairs and chair holders with different specialties work on the global topic of future functional materials.

Here the actual main topics of research and teaching are listed:
