Expression of Interest for hosting Marie Sklodowska – Curie fellows at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava


Interested institution:

Institute of Nuclear and Physical Engineering
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU)

Ilkovičova 3

Brief Description of the Institution

Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava is a modern educational and scientific institution. Since its foundation in the year 1937 more than 125.000 students have graduated there. In average, 19.000 students study at the STU every year.

At present, STU consists of seven faculties that provide research in a number of research departments and several centres of excellence following a long-term strategy when the priority areas are biotechnology and biocompatibility; sustainable resources and development: energy and raw materials; sustainable resources and development: environment, landscape and urbanism; nanotechnology, nanosciences and multifunctional intelligent materials; information society technologies; life, health and environment; safety, reliability and quality.

All the STU faculties provide study in accredited study programmes within the complex system of bachelor, master and PhD study. Faculties realise credit system compatible with the European credit transfer system enabling mutual mobility of students within European Union member countries and a larger European space. In the area of scientific and research activities the STU successfully joins European Union programmes.

Institute of Nuclear an Physical Engineering is focused on two main topics in research: i) nuclear power engineering and ii) material science. Different issues are studied by our members and PhD. Students (60 in total) including 7 full time professors.
