Materials Engineering

Prospects of graduates
Based on their own selection of the compulsory and elective subjects, the graduates of “Materials Engineering” study programme are specialised and trained in these specific areas:
Metallic materials
• Inorganic materials
• Polymer materials
• Textile materials
• Environmental engineering
• Computer-assisted materials engineering
• Materials a design


Study in the Materials Engineering study programme is carried out in a full-time form of study, within which the students can choose two specific educational approaches:
Approach no. 1 is predominantly for students who have sufficient or satisfactory space and time to study during the working weekdays because they can attend clas-ses, which are held from Monday to Friday by direct contact between the teacher and the student.
Approach no. 2 stends for flexibility and it is suitable and convenient for students who, due to any other responsibilities (e.g.: employment, bad health condition, spe-cial family or social conditions), are not able to attend classes during common working days and specified time. The education process is based on block educational form as well as the part of the full-time form is replaced by distance form of education (online lectures in real time or through the educational presentations, videos, tu-torials, etc., while the study resources can be found in predetermined cloud storage resources. The students have the opportunity to consult or discuss the stored mate-rials with the pedagogue through the discussion forums, individual consultations, etc. (The consultations are based on the student’s needs).

The graduate of the “Materials Engineering” engineering study programme has complex and comprehensive knowledge in the field of research and development as well as production of technical materials and technological processing of technical materials into semi-finished products and final products. Moreover, the given graduate is completely familiar with quality control and materials operational (in-service) diagnostics process, considering the main types of technical materials. The graduate has also ability to identify, specify and propose complex materials solutions (resolutions) and approaches, including environmental aspects and design of products, while he/she uses crucial knowledge on materials and moreover, he/she is familiar with managing teams of staff, leading projects independently and taking responsibility for complex solutions. An integral part of the graduate's education is knowledge relating to working with technical software packages as well as knowledge relating to numerical analysis and simulation of technological processes and material systems, including computational modeling and loading simulation of technical materials, in order to create the optimum design from the aspect of operational (in-service) load.
The graduate is completely educated for:
• work relating to the research and development worker in the area of the materials engineering, industrial engineering, application of experimental methods to study the structure and properties as well as functionality of materials;
• work relating to the research and development in the area of basic research, referring to the development of new materials, research of the physical and mechanical materials properties as well as the development of new diagnostic methods, innovative processes, sustainable technology solutions with minimum consumption of raw materials, energy and minimum waste (comprehensive processing of initial raw materials and final materials or products);
• work relating to production of manufacturing technology or management in the area of the projection and design and management of modern and environmentally acceptable industrial technological processes, progressive materials, products of consumption and technical services;
• work of a member of managerial personnel or a specialised team leading worker in the area of production problem solving, materials processing, materials quality con-trol and assurance in order to ensure the economic prosperity of the company;
• work of a specialist or a member of control administration personnel in the area of environmental engineering and sustainable development for regions, towns and vil-lages;
• work of a specialist in business area for production and technological processes, management processes as well as processes which stand for economic growth of company.
