More information 


The interdisciplinary field of materials science, involves the discovery and design of new materials, with an emphasis on solids. In both of activities examinations of the structure and properties are essential for control and further development. Material science examinations at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Silesian University of Technology is a modern course offering comprehensive students education in the field of traditional engineering knowledge and state-of-the-art scientific achievements in the field of materials. The proposed course is adjusted to the needs of the ever-changing labour market. They also have advanced knowledge from the area of physics, chemistry, materials science, materials design, and selection of engineering materials for applications in various products, and also technology of manufacturing, processing, and recycling of engineering materials, and how to combine their structure and properties.
