Masters 2016/2017 in Ostrava Czech Republic. Study Branch Materials Engineering Branch Profile The new Master’s study branch Advanced Engineering Materials in the study programme Materials Engineering is based on the integration of three former study branches: Engineering Materials, Materials Diagnostics and Design, Non-Ferrous Metals and Special Alloys. These study branches represented the principal study branches in the study programme Materials Engineering in the past. The Master’s study branch Advanced Engineering Materials picks up on the study branch having the same name in the bachelor study programme. In the Master’s study programme students firm and fill knowledge and skills acquired during bachelor study. Furthermore, they gain further knowledge and skills to be able to understand the depth and breadth of engineering materials in interrelationships. The conception of the new study branch is the following: There are fundamental subjects such as Physics of Solids, Phase Transformations, Degradation Processes of Materials, Surface Engineering, Computer Simulation and Modelling in Materials Engineering. These subjects are suitably combined with other subjects in order to fulfil the learning outcomes given hereinafter. It can be assumed that the new Master’s study branch Advanced Engineering Materials will become the most important study branch in the Master’s study programme Materials Engineering. Key Learning Outcomes Knowledge Graduates will have gained a deep knowledge of the subjects that represent an applied base of the study branch, e.g. physics of solids, phase transformations, degradation processes of materials, surface engineering etc. in such a level, which makes possible their application in other subjects and also in engineering practice. Graduates are able to describe detailed characteristics of different groups of engineering materials including materials for special purposes; they know detailed relations between internal structure of materials and their properties; they know advanced concepts of material properties improvement by means of changes in technology of material production and by means of structure modification. Graduates are able to characterise both basic and advanced methods of material properties testing, they can use even sophisticated methods of structure analysis. They are able to choose appropriate methods for material analysis depending on the kind of materials and purposes of their utilisation. Graduates can define advanced concepts of material degradation mechanisms; they can differentiate all important characteristics that play a key role in the resistance of materials to the different degradation mechanisms. Graduates are aware of limits of use of defined concepts or approaches and conditions of their use in practice. Skills Graduates are able independently and creatively: Perform a complex analyses of materials, their production technologies, properties etc.; to analyse and judge existing engineering solutions in the field of materials and to propose new innovative solutions. Perform an advanced material design taking into account all relevant properties in use (e.g. external loading; environment, etc.). Design suitable testing methods to evaluate materials properties as well as methods to evaluate materials structure. They are able to analyse obtained results in a highly qualified manner. They are also able to perform some kinds of testing by themselves. Perform sophisticated exercises in the field of materials engineering. Analyse relevant information and on their basis to judge existing technological procedures of material manufacturing and further processing and to propose innovative technological procedures. Exploit acquired knowledge and skills for both fundamental and applied research in the field of materials, mainly for a research and development of innovative materials with higher properties and also for an introduction of these materials into the production. General Competencies The graduates dispose of general competencies in the extent that is defined by the National qualifications framework for tertiary education with emphasis to communication, governing and organisation skills. They are able to communicate at least in one foreign language. Occupational Profiles of Graduates Students of the Advanced Engineering Materials Study Branch will deepen their knowledge in all important groups of materials: from metals, through polymers, structural ceramics up to composites. They will get a deeper understanding of microstructure – property relationships and advanced methods of materials characterization. Students will have an opportunity to work on modern experimental facilities and to participate in the solutions of industrial problems. They can take part of the studies in abroad, what will lead to the improvement of their language skills. All of this will bring them outstanding opportunities in the job market: in industrial companies, in scientific and research institutes, in marketing departments, and in educational organizations, etc. Admission Requirements Determined by Dean, may include entrance examination, other formal documents. Graduation Requirement 120 ECTS Credits, Final state examination, Diploma thesis Course Structure Diagram with ECTS Credits List of courses is available at the detailed branch description page 30 ECTS credit per semester.
