Department of technology of ceramics and nanomaterials

The department trains:

  • Bachelors  according to the direction "Materials science and technology of materials" (academic profile:  "Materials Science and Technology of New Materials");
  • Bachelors and Masters according to the direction "Chemical technology" (Bachelors’ academic profile is "Technology of ceramics and glass".  Masters’ academic profile:  "Chemical technology of refractory non-metallic and silicate materials").

The history of ceramics, glass and other silicate materials is the history of human civilization. Household items and fortress walls of ancient cities, decorations and magnificent buildings tell us the history of the development of crafts, technologies and arts. Properties of these natural materials – availability, strength, chemical resistance make them indispensable in the era of technological progress. New areas of their application are found in science, engineering,  in everyday life, in medicine.

Students of the department study and master both traditional, century-old technologies, and modern processes of materials manufacturing for various branches of industry which allow them to obtain unique materials with desired properties: ultrastrong, superconducting, heat-resistant, fire-resistant, etc.

Everyone knows various glassware, porcelain, ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, ceramic and silicate brick, cement, gypsum.

However, not everyone knows about different products made of silicate materials, although they are constantly around us and provide us with a comfortable life, these are various components in TV sets, computers, and other electronic devices.

Modern ceramic materials are semiconductors and insulators, light guides and luminophores, ferrites, ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials, protective coatings and adhesives, abrasives and precious stones, ceramic lenses and photon generators matrices for space, laser and electronic equipment, for power engineering and metallurgy,  automotive and machine building industry.

In addition, the Department of Technology of Ceramics and Nanomaterials,  in collaboration with the Department of Electrochemical Technology trains bachelors in "Technology of art material processing" direction.
