Branch Details

Materials Engineering

Original title in Czech: Materiálové inženýrstvíFSIAbbreviation: M-MTIAcad. year: 2018/2019

Programme: Applied Sciences in Engineering

Length of Study: 2 years

Accredited from: 1.9.2003Accredited until: 31.12.2020

Profile

The goal of the branch is to educate highly qualified and creative specialists which are able to use basic as well as applied scientific findings to fulfil the demands of constructional and technological fields of the machinery production:
1. Material specialists optimize the material selection in constructional teams.
2. Materials engineers suggest the best way to achieve full performance of the product by means of optimizing the process of any production technology (casting, forging, welding, heat treatment).
3. Materials engineers in testing facilities and laboratories carry the tests and measurements of materials properties and characteristics (mechanical properties, chemical and phase composition, metallographic studies of the microstructure, defectoscopy, etc.).
4. The graduates in „Materials engineering“ are able to work in the research and development of new materials.
