Content description
A degree in science and engineering is a stepping-stone to versatile career paths. It provides you with a strong background in mathematics and natural sciences. In-depth knowledge and skills in these fields enable you to work on the creative cutting edge of modern technology, where there are no ready-made solutions.

You can choose either mathematics, physics or chemistry as your major and tailor your degree with elective studies to become an expert in e.g.

- predicting the spread of pollution nanoparticles with the help of a parallel computer cluster;
- designing new types of laser sources for spectroscopy and microscopy;
- obtaining 3D images with numerical modeling based on electromagnetic and optical signals in biomedical, biological, geological and space applications; or
- designing methods for suppression of vibrations in flexible structures, such as solar panel arrays on satellites.

- designing and fabricating functional materials for emerging applications e.g. in targeted drug delivery, solar cells and soft robotics; or
- characterizing and analyzing complex systems in molecular level 

Many M.Sc. graduates continue studies towards a doctoral degree by carrying out research work in laboratories. Most of them have already gained research experience in summer projects or during their M.Sc. thesis work. However, the largest part of the M.Sc. graduates move directly to industry to work as an engineer in research and development, as an expert in the public sector, as a business or technology consultant, or as an entrepreneur. Generally, there is a high demand in the job market for skilled professionals with strong problem solving skills that this degree provides.
