Position Description

According to the classification of scientific fields, the concept of material engineering involves all works in the field of material science and material technologies. It is quite a wide totality of scientific problems, involving various issues of the research of materials aiming to improve the present properties of materials, create new materials and obtain information about properties of materials that have not been researched yet (the issues of materials science), as well as works of technological nature aiming to create more efficient methods for production of materials (it is an object of technology). Thus, material engineering can be comprehended as the area involving two inevitably related components: fundamental scientific research and practical engineering. Doctoral studies of Material Engineering are provided and scientific research is conducted at the Institute of Materials Science, Faculties of Chemical Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Design, and Mathematics and Natural Sciences. These scientific and educational departments have modern equipment, scientific experience and competences. Part of them conducts research of global level, focused on creation, development and application of technologies for knowledge-intensive material production processes.
Aim of the programme is to prepare the best qualified specialists – scientists, who are able to individually conduct the works of scientific research and experimental development, and contribute to solving of relevant scientific problems of material engineering.
