Education and Training



The Rhine-Main Universities Johannes-Gutenberg-University Mainz and TU Darmstadt will start an international master’s degree program “Soft Matter and Materials” in the coming winter semester. All teaching and learning content is in English.
“The goal of the Master's program Soft Matter and Materials is to provide technical knowledge and conceptual competence related to the production of building blocks (e.g. polymers, supramolecular tectons, colloids) and the structure-dynamics-property relationships of soft matter and materials. Functional concepts will be learned based on general synthetic components, in addition to biologically-relevant components. Knowledge of the technical processing and industrial utilization of soft materials will round off the training.” More information e.g. on the program structure can be found HERE

The Department of Chemical Engineering at University of Chemistry and Technology Prague, CZ, offers a new two-year MSc programme in Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering.
