About this program

Bachelors in Materials Engineering

The Materials Engineering study program offers a good perspective in terms of employment in the labor market. Students will get to know all important groups of technical materials - metals, polymers, structural ceramics to composite materials. The program includes basic information on the technologies of preparation and further processing of materials, it deals in detail with methods of testing properties and evaluating the structure of materials. The guaranteeing workplace has laboratories that are comparable to similar workplaces in developed countries. Students already have the opportunity to get involved in solving industrial problems during their studies, they can also complete internships abroad. If interested, graduates can further deepen their knowledge in the follow-up master's degree program Materials Engineering.

Graduate's skills

The graduate is able to:

  • Select proper technical material for the typical conditions of use (mechanical stress, external environment, etc.).
  • Design suitable types of tests for the evaluation of mechanical, or other properties of materials, to propose appropriate types of tests for evaluating the structure of materials and to perform some of the tests yourself.
  • Design basic technological procedures for the production and processing of materials with regard to the required mechanical other useful properties.
  • Design suitable technological procedures for recycling technical materials.
  • Carry out basic expertise in the field of materials - for example, define the likely causes of defects, or degradation of materials during their production, further processing and subsequent operational exposure, determine the causes of unsatisfactory mechanical and other useful properties, etc.
  • Actively participate in production management processes and quality control of technical materials.

Career paths

Graduate's knowledge

  • The graduate has knowledge of production technologies, processing and recycling processes of basic groups of technical materials.
  • The graduate has knowledge of the most important properties of technical materials, especially mechanical, physical and chemical properties; it also contains the most important methods of evaluating material properties.
  • The graduate has knowledge of the internal structure (microstructure) of the main groups of technical materials at different dimensional level, and also masters the most important methods of evaluating the structure of technical materials.
  • The graduate masters the basic characteristics of the main groups of technical materials (metals, polymers, ceramic materials and composite materials); in particular, the connections between their internal structure and useful properties, as well as the basic concepts of controlling the properties of materials by means of changes in their chemical composition and structure based on the optimization of their production and further processing technologies.
  • The graduate has knowledge of the most important degradation mechanisms of technical materials, including factors that influence the resistance of materials to these degradation mechanisms.
