Scientific, research and didactic laboratories
The Institute of Engineering Materials and Biomaterials of the Silesian University of Technology has a modern laboratory base with many unique laboratory research and technological equipment , and has highly extensive international cooperation with many centres in Europe and on all other continents. The Institute received the Certificate of Registration of Quality Management System complied with the principles of ISO 9001 in the framework of scientific research and teaching activities in the field of materials science and surface engineering in 2007. Using this system in the Laboratory an efficient and effective system of research management, which is the result of many-year experience associated with the use of specialised equipment, and implementation of large and small subject matters of research, was worked out. The particular attention was paid to the cooperation with the industrial units, which often require to begin immediately researches to solve scientific and research subject matter which appears at present. In the framework of research management system it is possible to make the decision to implement the order within a few hours since determining its scope and cost, which is an exception in our country in this subject matter.
In the Institute of Engineering Materials and Biomaterials there are the following laboratories:
