Objectives of the study program, structure and modules (practice), length, preparatory course

The primary purpose of the materials engineering course is to deepen the theoretical knowledge in respect of the physico-chemical processes applied for the production and processing of metallic, silicate and polymeric materials. The subjects on natural science, business, economy and human aspects are also included in the curriculum to lay the basis for a deeper understanding of the relevant processes and technological characteristics of materials technologies. Students can become capable of developing the production and treating processes, designing and testing of novel materials, such as metals, silicates, plastics and composites with up-to-date structures. Emphasis is also laid upon green processing, recycling and environmental protection. Students can freely choose among the following major specializations:

  • silicate technology
  • polymer technology
  • chemical technology
  • thermal energetics

In order to offer the expansion of their interdisciplinary knowledge, students can combine the following auxiliary specializations (minors) with their major fields:

  • materials testing and nanotechnology
  • environment protection and waste-utilization
  • archaeometallurgy
  • quality management

The total length of the study program is 4 semesters, including the one-month practical training and the two month graduation work. The area of the graduation work is derived from the major specialization. The specialization structure is selected at the beginning of the course. Students, who require preparatory courses before starting the specialized training, cannot take the above auxiliary specializations.
