Materials Science is a highly interdisciplinary field. Scientist with different backgrounds from engineering, physics, chemistry, biology and information technology work together with the goal to design, build and connect nanostructured and (bio)functional materials. By bringing together this heterogenous team you can achieve materials with unprecedented functionality and shape the society in which we live and work.

How does nature works and how can we use it? By making models and formulating natural laws, we can describe and predict the natural world. It leads to experimental research and practical applications.
Physics is concerned with describing and predicting natural phenomena. Applied physics is concerned with applying physics in technical solutions. Design and construction are important aspects of this.
How can you make a flexible solar cell that can be fixed to anything? How can you build a molecular-scale motor? These are some of the fascinating questions that you will try to answer as a chemist.
As a chemical engineer you deal with chemical processes on a major scale. Rather than studying reactions in a lab, you will be involved in chemical processes in factories or optimizing existing production processes.
