Teaching

Teaching at the the Chair of Materials Science at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena emphasizes the Humboldtian unity of research and teaching. Our teaching is based on lectures, seminars, lab courses and excursions within the study programs of materials science (BSc and MSc) and physics (BSc and MSc) with the following key aspects:
  • General materials science - introduction to materials science
  • Polymer physics - polymer materials science
  • Composites 
  • Materials for life sciences
  • Nanomaterials and nanopatterned material surfaces
We implement newest teaching methods [e.g., computer aided learning (CAL)] or problem-based learning. The teaching is partly multiligual. Our teaching program is completed by international student exchanges, e.g., with the United States of America.
