Metallurgy

The study programme provides a broader education in iron and steel metallurgy, non-ferrous metallurgy and recycling, foundry and thermal engineering.

The graduate has a deep knowledge and understanding of theories and concepts in: metal production, metal casting, foundry, production and application of non-metallic materials, chemistry, physical metallurgy, high temperature processes, thermal engineering and metallurgical energy; he/she has an overview of the current technical innovations of the field for designing research and development, respectively. The student has a detailed knowledge of the methods and means of control and simulation of processes; stationary and dynamic analysis of the studied processes, assessment of thermal stresses, flow, dynamics of hydromechanical and thermodynamic systems, heat and mass transfer, as well as the interaction of transfer phenomena with chemical reactions. It provides a detailed knowledge of the mathematical apparatus and principles necessary for the design and implementation of numerical and physical simulations of metallurgical processes. The student is proficient in the means of mathematical modelling and logical principles of processes at a high level.



Prospects of graduates

A graduate student is a top professional capable of independently solving problems of science and research or other very demanding tasks of practice; establishes scientific hypotheses or assumptions for solving problems directed towards the development of the field and practice, proposes scientific procedures for testing hypotheses, is able to present and defend his/her solutions before the professional community, can conduct a discussion about them in a foreign language, can write and publish a scientific thesis and publish original own results in a peer-reviewed journal at the national or international level, is able to contribute creatively and substantially to new solutions, has a high capacity for self-education to achieve a high degree of flexibility in the labour market, has good organisational skills, and has a well-developed ability to assimilate new information and to solve new technical problems; is able to practically use, develop and elaborate computer-based approaches in solving technical problems; is able to use basic and specific experimental methodologies and independently carry out even challenging experiments in the laboratory, is able to process and evaluate experimental results at a high professional level; is able to carry out independent, original and peer-reviewed, internationally publishable research that goes beyond the current frontiers of knowledge in the field. Analyses results and proposes solutions, optimisation, intensification of processes. Solves by means of mathematical modelling of thermo-technical processes. Analyses the energy intensity of processes and presents proposals for solutions. Proposes, submits and provides solutions to projects. The graduate autonomously plans and carries out research and development in the context of the requirements of society, independently presents the results of research and development to the professional community, creates original knowledge to make a significant contribution to the development of the field or area of professional practice, is prepared to hold the position of a top manager in the field of research, development and transfer of innovations, can organize and manage large projects, work in the field of research, development and transfer of technology and innovation, in the field of management and quality control, as well as in the business sphere and the state sector. Achieves a high level of understanding of the project at hand. Motivates people, organises and is accountable for the results of the tasks undertaken. Responsible for the proficiency of the work performed and evaluates the operations and execution. Creates new procedures and methods to solve energy processes.
