A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

Around the world, scientists are looking into new and better ways to use our existing resources or create new materials for industrial purposes. Materials science educates students for a career to address the needs of a global economy, by concentrating on engineering, chemistry, and technology.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
