About

The current Department of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering is the result of the unification of the Metallurgy and Siderurgy Chairs of the ETSEIB, together with the professors of the same Knowledge area of the ETSEIT and the Technical Faculties of Vilanova, Manresa and Terrassa.

Overview

The justification of a doctorate program shares with the other programs a common motive: To provide scientific background to the student and enough expertise in experimental techniques that can be used by the candidate after finishing his doctoral thesis. The program also aims to form professionals who can easily enrol later in Universities, technological centres, and companies, being able to lead and develop research activities.

The programme

The field of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering has progressively been acquiring its own identity during the last three decades. In turns, this technology is under permanent developing, more than traditional scientific or technological disciplines.

The doctoral programme in Materials Science and Metallurgy has been prepared to encompass the following objectives:

  • provide training in the experimental techniques needed for carrying out research tasks in this field
  • introduce different materials (plastics, ceramics, biomaterials) not studied as part of the second cycle
  • further scientific knowledge of the physical and mechanical behaviour of materials

Programme Structure

Research lines: 

  • Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering
  • Light Alloys and Surface Treatments Design Centre
  • Structural Integrity, Micromechanics and Reliability of Materials
  • Surface Interaction in Bioengineering and Materials Science 
  • Polyfunctional polymeric materials
  • Conformation Processes of Metallic Materials
