Institute of Ceramics, Refractories and Composite Materials

In 1950 the Institute of Ceramics at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg was founded by Professor Theodor Haase. Throughout the history, the research and teaching task areas have changed, so that the institute has been reorganized and renamed several times.

The enhancement of our research activities involving the area of high temperature materials and composite materials led 70 years later to the founding (establishment) of the Institute of Ceramics, Refractories and Composite Materials, comprising following professorships:


Managing director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Christos G. Aneziris

Deputy of managing director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas A. Bier
