Technology of Makromolecular Substances

Faculty: Faculty of Technology Programme: Technology of Makromolecular Substances Form: Full time, Part time Type: Doctoral Language: English

By now you understand that polymers make up today’s world, and that you want a part in their creation. If you want to become a polymer wizard, the ruler of the world of rubber and plastics with immense power their application, it is up to you to extend your studies a bit further. To be specific, about four more years. Doctoral programmes are always dedicated to scientific investigations and independent student research, but this specialization will make you a technology-oriented expert on anything that includes “-mer” (from monomer and dimer to Mercedes). We will equip you with the knowledge to accurately describe the physical and chemical properties of polymer materials as well as the production processes and the final products obtained from these compounds. You will discover your future in any organization dealing with the processing of materials in the plastics and rubber industry as well as related sectors such as the consumer-goods, automotive, electrotechnical and other industries. Obviously, there is a great deal of money to be made in these types of enterprises.
