Mission Statement

The Institute of Physics and Materials Science focuses on the study of micro- and nanostructure of materials and their influence on the physical and mechanical properties. Our aim is the fundamental understanding of biological, bio-inspired and technical materials and utilization of this knowledge in co-operations with partners from industry and research organizations in national context and abroad.

In our teaching we provide introduction into fundamentals of physics and natural sciences and profession-relevant knowledge about materials. We also continously aim at stimulating the students' interest in natural science research.
