Would you like to contribute to a sustainable planet and circular economy by creating new sustainable materials? Start a master’s in Biobased Materials.

Our planet is facing incredible challenges. Whole ecosystems are changing and collapsing because of the way we consume and the materials we use in our daily lives. The continuous use of fossil fuels and non-degradable materials is driving climate change at an accelerating rate. However, these challenges also offer tremendous opportunities to make our planet more sustainable and evolve as a society into a circular economy. With the master Biobased Materials, you can play a pioneering role in this green revolution. 

You’ll learn how biology provides the building blocks and processes to produce earth-friendly materials that are easily recycled after use as part of a circular economy. We’ll teach you about advanced functional materials and how we can develop these from biological resources. Our programme will prepare you for a fascinating career in the research, development, production, and application of earth-friendly materials made from various biological resources. Interested?
