We make it possible
STUDY MATERIALS SCIENCE
Uppsala University has world-leading research in materials science. In addition to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, research and education in the field of materials science also takes place at other departments, all of which are located at the Ångström Laboratory, one of Europe's most advanced laboratories for functional materials and energy research.
The need to develop existing and new materials exists in all industries and areas of society, not least to solve today's most challenging energy and environmental problems, and the prospects are extremely promising. Become involved in one of the world's most important and progressive areas of science!
WE DEVELOP MATERIALS THAT DRIVES TECHNOLOGY FORWARD
Materials science and technology is an exciting and vibrant interdisciplinary research area. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering has innovative researchers, state-of-the-art facilities and a highly collaborative research environment that can take on technical and societal challenges both now and in the future. Such as development of new solar cells, development of sustainable energy storage with organic nanomaterials, improvement of biomaterials that can be used in hard tissue applications or as delivery systems for medicines, to name a few.
