This Ph.D. program study deals with the education and development of highly qualified persons interested in many branches of chemical engineering. Students solve practical or theoretical problems in well-equipped laboratories and/or on powerful computers. Currently we offer PhD projects in the following topics: functional micro and nanoparticles, chemical robotics, engineering of polymer and porous materials, energy storage, microfluidics, microreactors, microsensors and microfabrication, electrokinetics and electrochemical processes, process control and design, development of column unit operations, fundamentals of mass transfer, flotation and surface phenomena, nonlinear dynamics of chemical and biological systems, fire dynamics and systems for fire protection, bioreactors with enzymes and cells, fundamentals of heterogeneous catalysis, automotive catalysts.
Chemical engineering provides the students with universally applicable education in many areas of industry, research, business, and administration. Our graduates typically get highly valued positions in chemical and pharmaceutical industry, in process design and software companies or in scientific and educational institutions over the world.
