Materials Science and Technology

  • Experts in the field of materials science for modern science-intensive enterprises that develop and introduce new materials and coatings into production.


Program Overview  

A materials scientist is someone who studies materials, creates new and improves the properties of existing ones. Such specialists are in demand in a wide variety of areas – construction, energy, automobile, aircraft and mechanical engineering, space, defense, oil and gas industries.

You will learn how to do research and testing, learn all about the properties of materials, how they are influenced by micro and nanostructures. You will be ready to participate in the development of technologies for the production of new materials, coating processing and process control systems.

Having achieved bachelor’s degree, you will be able to continue studying materials science at the TPU master’s degree, including in English.
