SHORT DESCRIPTION: The program has been designed for those who would like to take part in the scientific life, to design future materials, meet internationally well-known researchers, the Faculty of Materials and Chemical Engineering offers possibility to all these, during the 4-year-long PhD program.

The Antal Kerpely Doctoral School of Materials Science and Technologies awaits students having interest in up-to-date topics in materials science. State-of-the-art laboratories and equipment are available for PhD research and joint projects with industry-offered opportunities to expand professional skills.

SPECIALIZATIONS:

- Chemical Metallurgy
- Foundry
- Interface and Nanotechnologies
- Plasticization of Metals
- Material Information
- Space Science and Technology
- High Temperature Equipments and Thermal Energy Management
- Ceramics and Technologies
- Polymertechnology
- Chemical Processes and Technologies
More information in connection with these topics can be found on the Doctoral School/Themes page (www.kerpely.uni-miskolc.hu).
 
 
 
 

ENTRANCE EXAMINATION:

Stage 1.

Only those can be admitted to the doctoral program who received a Letter of Acceptance earlier. It means we only accept applications for topics published on the www.doktori.hu website. Applicants have to choose a topic, discuss the research plan briefly with the supervisor before submitting the application and if they agree only in that case we make the Letter of Acceptance.

Stage 2.

The Faculty coordinator organizes the Skype-interview, which takes 15-20 minutes. This is a conversation with the designated Entrance Examination Committee who will ask the questions (to introduce him-/herself, the MSc thesis briefly, his/her scientific background, future goals, why does he/she want to study in Hungary).

During the entrance examination 100% can be obtained, however the minimum score for the admission is 65%, which is only a compulsory pre-condition, it does not mean automatic admission.

Factors that are considered during the selection process:

The total points are calculated in percentage.

Stage 3.

After the Skype-interview Entrance examination sheets with the examination results are forwarded to the Directorate for International Relations.

 

CAREER PROSPECTS: Students with PhD degree in Materials Science can continue their career in research institutes, enterprises, and laboratories as researchers, material designers, tech developers and so on. Due to the strong theoretical background, students can take on a position as a lecturer or professor at a university as well.
