We deal with fundamental as well as application-oriented questions.

Exciting insights at Girls' Day

Girls can explore STEM professions and courses of study at the Germany-wide Girls' Day. We are happy to be part of it and offer two exciting opportunities to get to know the world of materials science at the MMS. Our first offer is a captivating lecture highlighting the diverse fields of activity. In our second offering, we invite you to join us for an interactive workshop. Don't miss this opportunity to discover your passion and potential in the STEM field!
