Material Engineering - Inžinier (Ing.) - full-time

Admission Requirements:

Basic criteria for admission into the level II study programme in Material Engineering include completion of the study programme in Material Technology or similar study programme at level I.

Information on the Programme of Study:

Study programme in Material Engineering, study discipline in 5.2.26 in Materials, focuses on formation of completely prepared technical engineering professionals specialised in creative work in the area of production technologies, optimal design of material use characteristics, quality control, and material processing through modern technological approaches. Graduates acquire knowledge in the area of chemical composition and structure of metallic and non-metallic material types, along with basic knowledge in production, testing, technological processing, selection of main characteristics of technological material types, and their degradation. Graduates will be able to carry out independent scientific and research activities at research institutes and material research laboratories. They will be prepared to independently face technological issues. Graduates will find employment also at units dedicated to the design of manufacturing instruments or products. 

Graduates of level 2, study discipline in Materials, study programme in Material Engineering are prepared to work mainly in material engineering industrial companies, as well as in the area of industrial engineering, production and technological processes, and in production management processes.    Graduates can also find work as production technologists or managing workers employed at design and management of environmentally friendly industrial technological processes, environment technology, environmental materials, consumer products, and technological services.  They can also be employed in basic research and development of new materials, research of physical properties of materials, as well as at development of new diagnostic methods, innovation processes, implementation of sustainable technologies with minimum consumption of raw material, and waste-free processes. (complex processing of input raw materials).

Access to further studies: Possibility to study at the Doctorate level in the study programme of materials and discipline no. 5.2.26 Materials, or related study discipline.
