Since 2013, the main research activities of the Faculty have been concentrated in the Regional Material Science and Technology Centre, which is part of the faculty and has been built with a subsidy of approximately CZK 900 million with the support of EU structural funds. Students, especially masters and doctoral programs, participate in the Center's research tasks. The acquired experience of the faculty staff and excellent instrumentation and technological equipment led to the establishment of extensive cooperation with research institutions, universities and industry, not only within the Czech Republic.
In the field of education and science, the Faculty develops cooperation with Czech and foreign partners - universities, research institutes and industry. The Faculty has long-term cooperation with foreign universities in Japan, China, USA, Russia and EU countries. The faculty is one of the so-called stone university institutions, has a long and rich history. Some faculty workplaces were already part of the university when it was founded by František Josef I in 1849. This year, our university and faculty commemorate 170 years since its establishment.
