Tribology is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion and of related subjects and practices. The nature and consequences of the interactions that take place at the moving interface control its friction, wear, and lubrication behaviour. Understanding the nature of these interactions at micro and nano scale and solving the technological problems associated with the interfacial phenomena constitute the essence of tribology. Tribology incorporates a number of disciplines, including mechanical engineering, materials science, mechanics, surface chemistry, surface physics and a multitude of subjects such as surface characterization, friction, wear, lubrication, thin films and coatings, materials, lubricants, and the selection and design of lubrication systems and contact properties. It forms a vital part of the engineering sciences and is one of the key engineering areas. The field of tribology, functional surfaces and interfaces is thus highly interdisciplinary and is becoming increasingly advanced in recent times.

Always verify the dates on the programme website.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
A MINIMUM OF A BACHELOR DEGREE
(equivalent of 180 ECTS and comparable to the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering RRP programme), with an average grade of at least 80% (grade point average GPA) in engineering, materials science, physical sciences or chemistry.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Applicants for TRIBOS master study programme can therefore apply for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship, provided by European Comission through the EACEA agency under Action 1 activity.
Erasmus mundus distinguish two types of scholarship:Category A scholarships are offered to:
All three criteria must apply for Category A scholarship eligibility.Category B scholarships are offered to:
Number of Category A and Category B scholarships is limited and decided for every edition of students on a yearly basis by the EACEA agency. Selection is valid for the whole duration of study programme, i.e. two years in the case of TRIBOS.
Due to limited number of scholarships, these will be offered to the best ranking students according to Admission and Selection criteria, decribed in the appropriate sections of TRIBOS web site, as well as based on the EACEA scholarship rules. The final decison is made in accordance with the EACEA procedures and agreement.
For the 2016/17 edition of TRIBOS students, about 15 Erasmus Mundus scholarships are envisaged. This number should be considered just as an indication of possible number of scholarships.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
