What job prospects are available to me after graduation?
The degree allows you to choose from a wide offer of occupations ranging from material selection and counseling to quality management. It qualifies you to work independently and autonomously in industrial research as well as basic research in public institutions.
Approximately half of all Masters of Science in Materials Science students earn their PhD and thereby specialize themselves in academic working techniques. Compared to many other subjects, earning a PhD is not mandatory in Materials Science: The employment prospects within industry are not any lower without a PhD title. Should you be striving for an academic career path though, then earning a PhD is a necessity. The strong academic environment in Stuttgart makes for relatively favorable conditions to earn a PhD as well as an academic career path.
