Faculty of Material Science and Applied Chemistry
The study programme “Materials Science” is a multidisciplinary study programme, which has been implemented since the academic year 1999/2000. The study programme ensures students with the background knowledge that enables them to continue their studies achieving master’s and doctoral degrees in materials science. You will obtain general knowledge on the types of basic and advanced materials (polymers, textile, wood, glass, ceramics, metals, composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, sensors and other smart materials). Manufacturing, characterization, exploitation, ecological sustainability and recycling of these materials is also considered during the studies.
The study programme aims to ensure that students acquire research skills and gain experience in the novel experimental techniques and equipment of the above-mentioned departments. The study programme envisages the elaboration and defence of the bachelor thesis that is independent mandatory research conducted by a student on a chosen topic in the relevant disciplinary field.
The study programme is implemented by experienced lecturers and scientists of the Institute of Polymer Materials of the Faculty of Materials Science and Applied Chemistry in collaboration with the academic staff of Departments of Chemistry, Silicate Materials, Technical Physics, General Chemical Technology, and the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomechanics.
