Do you have an interest in an interdisciplinary subject area that describes the relationships between a solid material's composition, structure, properties and performance, and how these relationships may be controlled through different parameters in the fabrication process? Then you may apply to a doctoral student position within the graduate school in of Materials Science when you have received your master's degree.
As a doctoral student you will develop an understanding of the relationship between a material’s composition and structure, and learn how the structure controls the properties of the material. Within the doctoral program in Materials Science, you will explore the scientific basis of the development of materials for advanced applications in modern technology. Read more in the study plan.
The graduate school in Materials Science is a cross-departmental graduate school with doctoral students at:
- Physics (host department)
- Chemistry and Chemical Engineering
- Industrial and Materials Science
Established by the Vice President on 2005-08-17, reference number C2005/937.
Latest revised on 2021-06-23, reference number F2021-0111.
This syllabus applies to doctoral students admitted as of 2021-08-01.
Regarding older syllabus, please contact the first vice/vice head of department.
A doctoral student admitted to an older syllabus may earn a degree in accordance with this, provided that the current Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and current Local Qualifications Framework – third cycle qualifications are followed.
Doctoral students admitted to an older syllabus of graduate school Materials Science can, however, change to the current syllabus by an application to the Deputy/Vice Head of Department. The change must be documented in the individual study plan.
The graduate school is regulated by the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology – third cycle qualifications and is described in the syllabus for the graduate school. In the event of any conflict between the documents, the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology – third cycle qualifications are governing. For the most recent version of all regulatory documents referenced in this syllabus, see Chalmers’s internal website. The graduate school in Materials Science is a cross-departmental graduate school with doctoral students at the departments of Physics (host department), Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, and Industrial and Materials Science.
