The fields of scientific interests is broad, including initiated by K. P. Bunin studies on microheterogeneous structure of melts and development of new functional ferrous materials.

From 2003 to 2008, talented scientist  E.P. Kalinushkin was in charge of the Department. He was a Doctor of Science in Metal Science, specialist in Metallophysics. He found the new scientific perspective for the Department – Development and Investigation of Thin-Film Coatings by High Energy Methods.  

Since 2008, Doctor of Science V.Z. Kutsova has been heading the Department. Carries out academic advising on Solid State Crystalline Transformation in High-Alloy Cast Irons and Non-Ferrous-Based Alloys within Semiconductors.


By now:

20 theses for the Doctor’s Degrees and 150 theses for the Degrees of Candidates of Sciences have been defended.
