About this program

Masters in Advanced Engineering Materials

The study program Advanced Engineering Materials, taught in English, is a follow-up to the bachelor study program Materials Engineering. The study program is intended primarily for foreign students – self-payers. The study program focuses on a wide range of advanced engineering materials, their structure and properties, in particular the relationship between material properties and their structure, the possibilities of further material processing and various methods of material properties testing. Workplaces that provide tuition in the study program have laboratories that stand out in comparison with first-class workplaces in developed countries. Students can participate in the solution of industrial problems already during their study. The study program offers an exceptionally good perspective from the point of view of the labour market.

Graduate's knowledge

The graduates of the study program:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of basic theoretical courses – e.g solid state physics, phase transformations, physical metallurgy, fracture mechanics at a level making possible their application in other courses and in engineering practice.
  • Master detailed characteristics of advanced engineering materials including materials for special purposes; they understand in particular detailed relations between their internal structure and properties in use; they also understand advanced concepts of increasing materials properties through changes in production technologies and material structure changes.
  • Are able to characterize both basic and advanced methods of materials properties testing, as well as sophisticated methods of structure phase analysis of materials. They are capable to choose appropriate testing methods to evaluate the properties and structure for different types of materials and different conditions of use.
  • They master advanced concepts of materials degradation processes and characteristics that determine resistance of materials to these degradation processes.
  • They are aware of the limits of defined concepts, approaches, conditions of their use, or their limitations in practice.

Graduate's skills

Graduates are able independently and creatively:

  • To perform a comprehensive analysis of materials, their production technologies, utility properties, etc.; to analyze and evaluate existing technical solutions in the field of materials and also propose new solutions.
  • To perform advanced design (selection) of engineering materials for given conditions of use (mechanical loading, external environment, etc.).
  • To propose appropriate kinds of tests to evaluate properties of materials and methods for evaluation of structure characteristics, to interpret testing results competently and to carry out some kinds of tests by themselves.
  • To perform demanding expertise in the field of materials engineering.
  • To analyze the relevant information and on their basis to evaluate existing technological processes in the materials production and processing, or to propose new technological procedures.
  • To use obtained knowledge for the theoretical and experimental research of materials, especially for research and development of new materials with increased utility properties and their introduction into production

Career paths

Graduate's employment

Graduates will find a wide range of jobs in engineering, metallurgical, automotive industry, in companies oriented to the production and/or processing of polymer materials, ceramics, etc. as highly qualified experts for solving a wide range of materials problems, e.g. as technologists, managers, etc. Graduates can also find employment in institutions dealing with research and development in the field of materials.
