Wroclaw University of Technology

Teaching and scientific research conducted at the Wroclaw University of Technology are of interdisciplinary nature and transcend the traditional fields of engineering, merging technical sciences with mathematics, natural, economic sciences and art. The education acquired at the University is to help the graduates understand the social and civilization processes, to equip them with knowledge that will not become outdated, and to prepare them for continuous education throughout their whole professional activities.

Faculty of chemistry

The Faculty of Chemistry, one of the largest of its kind in the country, upholding the traditions of generations of Polish chemists and chemical engineers, employs 33 full (titular) professors, 38 associate professors and 108 assistant professors. Around 700 students are admitted every year.

In spite of its long and rich history, the faculty promotes modern and emerging fields of research and of students curricula.

We are a part of a technology-oriented university, hence the scientific profile of the Faculty is equally divided between fundamental and applied research in various domains of chemistry and bordering sciences.

The Faculty consists of 15 research units (2 institutes and 13 divisions) covering a broad spectrum of interests including for example biochemistry, physical, inorganic, organic, and analytical chemistry, technology, chemical engineering etc.

Master and doctoral courses are offered in a wide range of disciplines, especially at the frontier with physics, materials and environmental sciences, and biology. Students working for their MSc's can choose one of five options: Chemistry, Chemical Technology, Chemical and Process Engineering, Biotechnology, and Materials Science, following highly individualized curricula.

Research: Center of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology

Head: prof. Jan Misiewicz
tel: (++48 71) 320 35 68, 320 23 98

The Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology has been initiated as an interdisciplinary center by professors of chemistry, physics and electronics. It was established in 1998 by the decision of the Senate of Wrocaw University of Technology and formally started its activities in 1999. The Center does not have a rigid administrative or institutional structure, it is rather a self-organized network of research groups distributed throughout the university departments. The aim is to get together researchers from different disciplines to carry out interdisciplinary studies on nanoscience and nanotechnology, to integrate and support research activities on complex systems with controlled structures and functions at nanometer scale.
