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

The program of metallurgical engineering focuses on the deep understanding of the physico-chemical and technological aspects of metals extraction, casting, hot and cold working. 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 chemical and physical metallurgy. Students can become capable of developing the production and treating processes, designing and testing novel metallic materials with up-to-date structures, e.g. high-purity metals, high-strength alloys, metallic coatings, etc. Emphasis is also laid upon green processing, recycling and environmental protection. Students can freely choose among the following major specializations:

  • chemical metals technology
  • foundry engineering
  • heat treatment and metal-forming
  • 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.
