Branch detail

Materials Engineering


Original title in Czech: Materiálové inženýrství
Abbreviation: M-MTI
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 2 years
Programme: Applied Sciences in Engineering
Faculty: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 1.9.2003
Accredited until: 31.12.2020
Profile of the branch:
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.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:
  • materials specialist within design teams
  • heat treatment technologist
  • worker in fundamental and applied research of materials and technologies
  • manager in the area of materials testing and quality management
  • manager of technological divisions
  • teacher of specialized subjects at secondary schools

On completing their studies, masters can continue in the follow-up doctoral studies of physical metallurgy and limit states of materials.
