Overview

The Technology of Wood, Plastics and Textiles international degree programme provides specialisation either in woodwork or plastic technology. Teaching is organised into modules combining lectures, seminars and laboratory work in the recently renovated laboratory of Polymer Physics and Technology, which is equipped with state-of-the-art devices. The programme also emphasises the basic practical knowledge of CAD-engineering programmes and CAM-manufacturing technologies as they are extremely important in every industrial sector all over the world. The curriculum gives students the unique opportunity to implement their individual research projects in collaboration with various companies.


Key features

  • All courses are taught by using blended learning solutions (face-to-face + e-learning) which makes the learning process more flexible
  • Students have the opportunity to visit different wood-, plastic, and furniture products manufacturing companies, so they are getting familiar with production
  • Three hands-on scientific research or industrial projects develop students’ skills and provide a smooth transition from university studies to a professional career
