About this program

PhD in Technologies and Materials

The doctoral program in technologies and materials is focused on independent scientific and research projects in the field of materials. Its aim is to produce highly-educated and creative graduates capable of conducting scientific research in material engineering.

PhD candidates will refine their knowledge of mathematics, physics and applied sciences in the theoretical foundation of material engineering. Students will have the ability to formulate solutions in the fields of research into new materials, their properties and potential optimal uses for both metallic and non-metallic applications.

Graduates of this PhD program will have mastered the skills and the high level of theoretical knowledge for solving specific problems related to:

  • New materials: new metallic materials and inter-metallic compounds, ceramic materials, composite materials with polymeric matrix, surface finishes of materials and testing of properties of materials
  • Mechanics, rheology and thermodynamics of polymers: study of mechanical properties of polymers in the solid phase, study of rheological behavior of polymer melts and mixtures with the goal of achieving the required molecular structure and the required physical and chemical properties in the solid phase, study of thermal and other characteristics of polymers
  • Structure and properties of polymers: study of correlations between the molecular structure and the properties of polymers in the solid phase taking into account the processing of materials and their functional properties in the widest spectrum of applications

Upon completion of the study program, graduates will find careers as research team members in both theoretical and applied research areas, or as experts in the teams of industrial development centers and major research institutions. Due to the profound knowledge in the subject, they will also succeed in a broader context as lecturers in international institutions.
