Study programme Metallurgical Technology

About study programme

The doctoral study branch Metallurgical Technology covers the entire issue of production and processing of liquid and solid materials based on iron and non-ferrous metals, thereby holds a unique position in the structure of disciplines of Czech universities.Workplaces of specialized departments are equipped with modern experimental, instrumental and analytical equipment with which it is possible to solve the challenging tasks of scientific research projects in the field of basic and also of applied research. The Doctoral Degree Programme educates top scientific professionals who will be able to apply their knowledge in the scientific, research, development and also in the production sphere in a highly professional and leader functions in the specific field and also in related fields.
