Materials Science&Engineering PhD Program

The Skoltech PhD program in Materials Science and Engineering is the interdisciplinary program that covers the competences at the junction of fundamental physics, chemistry, chemical and mechanical engineering. Its main goal is to educate in the fundamental principles and modern applications of the physico-chemical design, synthesis and characterization of the materials for applications in energy as alternatives sources and storages, modern electronics, catalysis and other technologies. The program also seeks to target industrial methods of materials production and preparation, design, testing and quality control of the technological equipment, complex assessment of material properties and demands for materials underpinning emerging technologies.
