Students of Materials Science - News

We're online - and finally in English!

Dear students of materials science, we will use this website to keep you informed about upcoming events like our pub crawl and of course about some general things concerning the materials science course of studies.

In the section "Resouces" you will find details on how you can access exams and exercises from the recent past. There is also a description on how you can get your hands on books and the like. Please help us expand our database for future generations by sending us resources from current lectures!

Click HERE to find out how you can sign up for our mailing list which we use to distribute important and useful information. Also, if you have any questions about a lecture, the course of studies - or more general about living in Stuttgart - don't hesitate to contact us and we'll do our best to help.

We will be there from 8:00 am but you're also welcome to drop by later before you head to your Synthesis and Properties lecture.

Pub Crawl WS2019/20

Everyone, including Freshmen and materials science veterans, is invited to our pub crawl! We will meet  in the S-Bahn station Stadtmitte (between S-Bahn and U-Bahn, signs to SSB-Kunden Centrum) on October 24 at 8pm to check out some of Stuttgart's night life.
We hope you'll be there!
