M.Sc. in Chemical Technology: Composites and Nanomaterials


Program Description

M.Sc. in Chemical Technology, specialization: Composites and Nanomaterials (Faculty of Chemical Technology), duration: 3 semesters, 90 ECTS points

Our Master studies in Chemical Technology – Composites and Nanomaterials last three semesters starting in February each year. The first semester is partly devoted to improving the basic knowledge in chemical technology for candidates studying abroad and those students who (at their bachelor level), studied majors different from chemical technology in order to reach standards defined by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Regular courses focus on physical and inorganic chemistry, engineering of materials and chemical reactors, the technology of polymers, processing of nanomaterials and composites. Classes on modeling and simulation are also included. Laboratory classes allow performing synthesis and detailed characterization of composites together with their various practical application using the specific physical, mechanical and electrochemical properties.

Ecology and recycling are also included in the program, as well as advanced materials for the generation and storage of energy. The students have also the possibility to select elective courses during studies, e.g. biotechnology, medical aspects, or others.

A graduate receives the title – Master of Science in Chemical Technology. He/she is prepared to perform research and development in the discipline of his/her education, i.e. chemical technology, especially in Composites and Nanomaterials. A graduate can be employed in research and industry where the knowledge of advanced materials is required. His/her competences will be synthesis, characterization, processing, and application of composites and nanomaterials including environmental protection.
