The Jozsef Cziraki Doctoral School of Wood Sciences and Technologies was established in the early 1990’s, and has been fully accredited since 2002. During this period, 106 students successfully completed their studies.
The students receive strong theoretical, research methodology and scientific backgrounds, and complete their research individually, with some guidance from their advisors. Supervision is offered by the top experts and wood scientists in Hungary.
Research projects encompass a wide range of topics, including wood science and wood technology, pulp and fibre technology, wood construction, and even more loosely related topics of nanotechnology, architecture, light industry, or wood-related IT and marketing research.
The topics are typically linked to industrial research or innovation projects so that Sopron doctoral graduates have not only strong theoretical backgrounds, but are very practical scientists as well.
