Master of Science in Chemistry and Technology of Materials

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering has been offering a Postgraduate Course since the 2004-2005 academic year that leads to a Master’s Degree (MSc) in Materials Chemistry and Technology, lasts 3 semesters and gathers 90 ECTS. This course is an Interdepartmental Postgraduate Course, with the participation of the Departments of Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry and Physics, at the University of Ioannina.

The purpose of this Master’s degree is to train scientific experts in Materials Chemistry and Technology, to provide its graduates with a solid scientific background, experience and expertise in this cutting-edge technical field, especially in methods of synthesis, design and modern applications on materials, such as ceramics, polymers, metals and composites applied in modern applications, such as catalysts, electronics, magnetic, optical, conductivity, biomedicine etc. The course is expected to create Scientists and Engineers with the required skills and knowledge in the field of materials for a successful career in the private, public and academic sector, or in research centres that need expert scientific staff capable of improving and/or contributing to the discovery and use of new improved materials, eventually leading to Greece’s technological and economic development.

This Master’s degree was reformed two times, in 2014 and 2018. It starts in November and admits a maximum of twenty (20) postgraduate students. It includes two academic semesters of compulsory attendance, and one semester for the Master thesis that leads to the award of a Master’s degree (MSc). Postgraduate students shall carry out their research at the UoI Departments of Materials Science, Chemistry amd Physics, and at labs under the instruction of researchers and faculty members.

Director of the MSc program is Professor S. Agathopoulos.
