Double degree programme with partners from the Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials Network.

Materials engineering encompasses 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, materials engineering can be comprehended as the area involving two inevitably related components: fundamental scientific research and practical engineering.

 

Materials engineering doctoral studies involve research of global level in the laboratories equipped with modern equipment, focused on creation, development and application of technologies for knowledge-intensive material production processes.

Students of this programme have a possibility to acquire double PhD degree at the universities of the Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials Network (PCAM).
