Department Materials Science

Mission Statement

Within the Department of Materials Science, research is done at the highest international level, to achieve a detailed understanding of the structure and the properties of materials and materials systems. In teaching, students are integrated as early as possible in research activities, to gain new insights by joint research of supervisors and students. The obtained findings are transferred to the society via publications, to establish a solid knowledge basis for future applications. International visibility of the Materials Science area at Montanuniversität Leoben stems from a supercritical size, which necessitates the completeness in methods available to us and in the materials classes covered.
