Materials

The Materials degree programme covers knowledge related to process and materials engineering. It provides knowledge in the specialised area of Mechanical Engineering devoted to engineering materials, which is part of the theoretical basis for machine design and industrial engineering. It is primarily concerned with knowledge of the relationship between the chemical composition of materials, their structure and properties, knowledge of their limit states and the causes of their degradation. In the study programme attention is also paid to the knowledge of the principles of production technologies of structural materials and the main metallurgical and mechanical engineering technologies of their processing. It enables the student to acquire the ability to select combinations of materials and technologies for the manufacture of products in different sectors of industrial and technical practice as well as practical skills for the evaluation of the structure and properties of materials.



Prospects of graduates

The graduate knows the natural science knowledge base (mathematics, physics, chemistry) and can use it to explain the basic physical and chemical processes involved in the production and processing of technical materials. Understands the basic relationships between the chemical composition, internal structure, structure and properties of metallic, non-metallic and composite engineering materials and knows the causes of their mechanical and physico-chemical degradation. The graduate identifies the basic principles of metallurgical technologies of production of structural materials and engineering technologies of their processing. The student knows the basic parts of mechanical engineering structural units, understands their representation, description and definition of interrelations of their parts in technical documentation. Can design suitable types and design of materials for specific engineering products and their applications, as well as suitable classical or progressive technologies of their production and processing (casting, forming, heat treatment, surface treatment), or their combinations. The graduate can prepare samples for the evaluation of the structure of materials and their own metallographic analysis by light microscopy. The student is able to quantify the basic mechanical properties, quality and extent of degradation of materials using appropriate mechanical property tests, diagnostic and analytical methods. Actively acquires information on new trends in the field of Mechanical Engineering with a focus on structural materials, analyses them and uses them in solving professional tasks and innovative projects. The graduate is able to solve technical problems in the production and processing of materials in a team and manage an adequate team of workers.
