The Faculty employs 38 professors and associate professors as well as 120 doctors. The research carried out at the Faculty involves materials engineering and metallurgy, focusing on the following branches: waste-free technologies, development and utilization of waste materials, mathematical modelling and optimization of metallurgic processes, environment management, electric heating engineering, computer aided design processes, theory and technology of metallic materials, cracking mechanics, biomechanics, modelling of heat flow processes, kinetics of welding processes, kinetics of waste formation and destruction, technologies of composite formation, surface engineering, founding, structure analysis and properties, design of chemical composition and technologies of materials, subject to complex mechanical and thermal load and corrosion environment, ceramics technologies of special properties, stereological methods, new biomedical materials.

The Faculty maintains didactic and scientific cooperation with about 30 foreign universities and research institutes from the Czech Republic (e.g. Vysoka Skola Banska-Ostrava), Estonia, France (e.g. Ecole Centrale Paris), Holland (e.g. Technical University- Eindhoven), Lithuania, Germany (TU Bergakademie Freiberg, TU Dresden, TU Magdeburg, FH Muenster, FH Osnabrueck), Russia, Slovakia (e.g. Technicka Univerzita Kosice), Sweden, Ukraine, the USA (e.g. University of Minnesota, University of Tennessee), the United Kingdom (e.g. Brunel West London University) and Italy. The cooperation with foreign research centres also involves such European programs as Socrates-Erasmus, Inco-Copernicus and Ceepus. Furthermore, the Faculty cooperates with numerous domestic and foreign universities and institutes, as well as with production plants of automotive industry, aircraft industry and metallurgy and power industries.
