Description of the field of study: 

Application of nanomaterials have long gone beyond advanced space, military or aircraft technologies. More and more, polymer nanomaterials are used in medicine, automotive industry, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, electronic and many other industries. One would not err by claiming that nanoengineering and molecular engineering will become the foundation of technology in the 21st century. The objective of education in this field of study is to train engineers who will easily operate in various industry sectors as well as will make great employees of research and science organizations of the future. The programme of study embraces courses which provide knowledge in the area of engineering  and polymer nanomaterials, synthesis, processing and modification of polymers and polymer nanocomposites used as construction materials. It also covers course dealing with development, synthesis and manufacture of organic and inorganic functional nanomaterials for medical and electronic applications.  In the course of the degree, students acquire knowledge and learn skills in the scope of physics, chemistry and information technology and materials science (materials engineering) with special consideration given to polymer nanomaterials. They learn to select the best nanomaterials to suit particular applications and acquire broad knowledge in methods of modification and testing their structure at the nanoscopic scale. Students are introduced to manufacturing and processing technologies of nanomaterials and materials both engineering as well as functional, and technologies of manufacturing and recycling of finished goods.
