Materials, Metallurgy, Mining engineering and geotechnology
Materials science and engineering is a discipline ranging between the science of inanimate nature and the science of process engineering that exceptionally marked the technical and social development of mankind in the previous century and which continues in the new millennium. Its results are practically applied in every discipline of natural sciences and engineering, in medicine, in information engineering, etc. A combination of various materials opens new possibilities for transport and space engineering, as well as for new energy sources.
The basic objective of the Interdisciplinary Doctoral programme in Material science and engineering, carried out by the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, is to qualify professionals to attain employment in research institutions in the areas of natural sciences and engineering, mainly in the development, manufacturing, and application of standard and modern functional materials, as well as in administrative services, or to continue their careers in academic institutions.
The programme consists of three scientific fields: Materials, Metallurgy, Mining Engineering, and Geotechnology. The programme is coordinated by the Programme Council, consisting of the representatives of the three faculties.
