Battery Materials and Technology (M.Sc.)

Are you interested in the rapidly evolving fields of battery technology, sustainable energy storage and electromobility? Graduate with a Master´s degree in „Battery Materials and Technology“ and explore the next generation of battery materials!

The the first of its kind Master’s Programme at the University of Bayreuth is taught in English and aims at training national and international professionals in the field of battery technologies along the entire value chain starting from battery materials and electrochemistry up to battery packs up to battery management systems. These qualifications are currently in high demand on the job market.

Students benefit from the close connection to the "Bavarian Centre for Battery Technology" (BayBatt) where the University of Bayreuth is conducting intensive research from battery materials and analytics to intelligent, networked, and sustainable energy storage systems for the future.

The programme will start in winter term 2022/2023. For excellent students there will be the chance to obtain an individual research fellowship.


The Master´s degree programme adresses Bachelor´s degree graduates from natural or engineering sciences.

Basic knowledge of mathematics and physics is mandatory. Basic knowledge of general chemistry is required.

Language Proficiency: ENGLISH: level B2; GERMAN: level A1. Applicants who cannot provide the German A1 language certificate will be enrolled on the condition that they submit it by the end of the second semester at the latest.

You can apply for the programme by using the application portal CAMPUSonline.

Application process:

  • Submit your application via CAMPUSonline. Please see the guideline for CAMPUSonline.
  • An aptitude assessment procedure is following. This procedure ensures that the appropriate degree programme is chosen and helps you to plan the right study path.

The Master's programme
"Battery Materials and Technology" (M.Sc.) comprises modules with a total of 120 ECTS credits. It offers a broad range of modules, which are structured into the following module areas:

    Alignment Modules
    Compulsory Modules
    Elective Modules.

In their first semester, students take alignment modules, taking into account their previous education, in those areas in which they have not yet gained sufficient familiarity. Considering the subject breadth, first semester also provides students with battery-specific basic knowledge and initial interdisciplinary in-depth knowledge in the areas of battery system technology, battery materials, and electrochemistry.

In the compulsory curriculum of their second semester, all students extend their knowledge of the material and system side of the battery as well, as the internal processes within a battery cell, in order to gain an overall understanding of the battery. Meanwhile, the compulsory elective modules allow individual in-depth to pursue your specialization.

The third semester is characterized by the joint seminar with the related degree programme "Batterietechnik" and the research modules. With them, you gain insight into current research and apply what you have learned.

The programme concludes with the master's thesis.

Please see the Module Handbook for detailed information.

Career ProspectsHide

A current estimate for the global demand of batteries for electric vehicles, stationary storage, and consumer electronics assumes an increase by a factor of nearly 15 by 2030. This enormous growing demand is leading currently to a massive expansion of production capacity throughout Europe and the rest of the world, requiring many more highly-qualified specialists with the necessary battery know-how. Modern, powerful, and sustainably produced batteries are keys for a clean energy future. These are excellent prospects for you, because your Master’s degree equips you for exciting tasks in industry and research.

"Battery Materials and Technology" has scientific orientation and is well suited for applicants which want to pursue a PhD as follow up. Benefit from the close link to the Bavarian Centre for Battery Technology (BayBatt) and be part of the next generation of highly qualified battery researchers!


Students in the Master´s degree programme can be financially supported by individual research fellowships. Fellowships are sufficient to obtain a visum to enter Germany for study, and cover living expenses.

Applications for other financial support for study in the programme through private or public organizations are encouraged and will be supported by us.
