The origins of the Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics date back to 1949, when the Faculty of Minerals, later renamed the Faculty of Ceramics, was established at the University of Mining and Metallurgy. Its present name was given in 1971 and was related to the inauguration of the Materials Science programme of study, the first such programme in Poland and one of the first of this kind in Europe.
The research activities of the faculty staff, chiefly in the field of solid-state chemistry, focus on large-scale technologies of traditional ceramic materials, as well as advanced and cutting-edge research and analytical techniques.
The Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics educates students in the following disciplines: Materials Engineering, Chemical Technology, Ceramics (since 2010), and Chemistry of Building Materials (a joint programme of three universities: Gdańsk University of Technology, Technical University of Łódź, and AGH UST, offered since 2011). Students who graduate from the faculty have a strong technological background, traditionally associated with the manufacturing of ceramics, glass, building materials, and refractories. They also have comprehensive engineering knowledge in the fields of designing, processing, and testing new materials for specific applications in different fields of modern industry (for example, energy production, aviation and automotive industries, electronics), materials for medicine, and environmental protection, as well as analytical science and quality control.
The Faculty Board is authorised to confer the doctor’s degree, as well as postdoctoral qualifications, and the title of professor of chemical and engineering sciences in the following disciplines: chemical technology, materials engineering, and chemistry.
The Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics is a modern and well-equipped research and education centre of national importance, has strong links with industry, and a broad international partnership.
