NEW! Carl Zeiss Master of Scienc Scholarship open for application

HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials

Additive Manufacturing

The HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials is integral part of the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter made to Order (3DMM2O), which is a collaboration of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD). It pursues an interdisciplinary approach through conjunction of natural, engineering and sciences.

3DMM2O establishes scalable digital 3D Additive Manufacturing transcending from the molecular to the macroscopic scale. The goal is the ultimate digitalization of 3D manufacturing and material processing. The cluster 3D Matter Made to Order consists of 32 Principal Investigators from the natural, engineering and life sciences.

The Carl Zeiss Foundation funds a scholarship program, which supports up to 20 PhD students PLUS a qualification scholarship program, which supports up to 4 MSc students per year in the HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials.

We are looking forward to your application!
