Materials and processes

The doctoral college "Materials and Processes" is an institution of the Clausthal University of Technology for all interested natural scientists and engineers and performs interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary tasks in research and teaching, especially for the promotion of young scientists at the Clausthal University of Technology. The aim is to lead doctoral students to a doctorate within 3 years and to provide them with interdisciplinary training as young scientists. "Materials and processes" in this college refer to all topics of materials science, materials engineering, process and environmental engineering as well as mechanical engineering. Material treatment processes of waste in the sense of the Circular Economy Act (KrWG) are included. The common goal of the research training group is the specification and further development of material properties and processes with the help of experimental and theoretical investigations, for example, on reaction processes, process parameters, material treatment and test methods. In contrast to DFG Research Training Groups or Graduate Schools, there is no common cross-institutional research objective. Instead, the principle of individual doctorates applies without restriction. The resulting heterogeneity of the topics is intentional and contributes directly to the interdisciplinary qualification of the fellows.
