Physical and Materials Engineering
The curriculum concentrates on the comprehensive study of materials properties and failure processes from the point of view of physics and physical metallurgy. Students should develop capability to apply their knowledge in inventive manner to new technologies and materials, such as plasma spraying, special methods of thermo-mechanical and thermo-chemical treatment, etc. Special attention is paid to the degradation processes and to the synergetic effects of various materials properties on material failure. The subjects of study are metallic and non-metallic materials, e.g., structural ceramics, polymers, amorphous and nanocrystalline materials and intermetallics.
The Ph.D. programme requires proficiency in mathematics and physics at the MSc. degree level obtained from Faculty of Science or Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program
- Development and application of an electron beam apparatus for technological and analytical purposes
The work will be aimed at design, assembly and testing of an apparatus utilizing an electron beam for welding, modification and analysis of materials.
- Devolepment of electron microscopy components for material characterization
The work will especially deal with the design of an instrument for electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) finding applications in material characterization by electron microscopy.
