An international project to create a new master’s program in industry-oriented materials science
The Franco University, in cooperation with the University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland), the University of Žilina (Slovakia) and the University of Afyon Kocatepe (Turkey), is implementing an international project to create a new master’s program in industry-oriented materials science.
A seminar on “Needs and Barriers in the Didactics of Materials Engineering” was held on 12-13 May at the University of Silesia in Katowice as part of the European Union-funded Erasmus + (KA220-HED) project “Materials Science – Development of a New Master’s Program”. In order to exchange ideas, innovative practices in teaching materials science, the seminar was attended by Associate Professor of Chemistry Lydia Boychyshyn – Project Manager from Ukraine, Senior Research Fellow Iryna Marchuk – Coordinator of “Market and Scientific Environment Needs” and Head of the Department of Metal Physics, Professor Stepan Mudry – project expert in materials science. Oksana Balaban and Tetyana Tepla, associate professors from Lviv Polytechnic National University, were also invited to participate in the seminar.
