Educational and Research Centre in Transport

The purpose of the project Educational and Research Centre in Transport is:

  • creation of strategically important technical Centre for developing educational and research activities of the Jan Perner Transport Faculty as the only higher education department of this nature in the whole region

  • utilization of the most advanced available equipment in the field of transport structures and transport means for improving education of Master and Doctoral study programmes in relation to needs of companies operating in the region in the  field of transport and testing

  • development of multi-disciplinarity of creative and educational  activities in the technical and technological branches in the field of material engineering
