The Master Program
“Advanced Metallurgical Engineering” is concerned with the development, production, and processing of ferrous, non-ferrous, and mineral materials. It is the basis for innovative products and new technological developments in the fields of industry, technology, and medicine.
Research in this department focuses on materials design. It includes general research to ascertain the structure of and opportunities for optimising known materials, for example steel, aluminium, magnesium, glass, ceramic. Scientists in this division also deal with issues relating to surface technology, recycling, manufacturing, and processing using state-of-the-art production processes including quality assurance inspections.
The program provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of metallurgical engineering. Its particular focus is on industrial practices and modern manufacturing processes. The program aims at enhancing the students’ ability to design and manage projects and to lead and coordinate project teams.
This program focuses on all disciplines within Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Technology. At the beginning of their studies, students have to select their individual area of specialism:
Process Technology of Metals
Physical Metallurgy and Materials
Materials Science of Irons and Steels.
As a result of training the graduates of the program to acquire knowledge and skills of qualified specialists in the field of metallurgy and novel technologies. The main aim of the program is to awards students a Master degree, which is well recognized around the world.
Duration of study: Two academic years (4 semesters).
