Study Branch

Metallurgical Engineering

Branch Profile

The Master's Study Branch Modern Metallurgical Technology is designed as a modern study branch aimed at training professionals for current and highly sophisticated metallurgical technologies, covering in detail the issues of theory and technology of production, casting and processing of iron and steel or their forming, including the forming of non-ferrous metals and/or foundry of alloys based on both iron and non-ferrous metals. In addition to these specialization areas, all graduates receive knowledge from the field of technical materials, industrial furnaces, preparation of non-ferrous metals and alloys, methods of planning and quality enhancement as well as managerial economics. Theoretical knowledge is complemented with a number of additional laboratories and computing practical exercises, in which the current laboratory technology is applied, and which address tasks related to metallurgical processes and their modelling. These are mainly focused on the selected study branches, or also partially extend to related study branches, such as Thermal Engineering and Ceramic Materials, or Materials Engineering. The study branch has a unique position in the structure of study fields at Czech universities.

Key Learning Outcomes

Knowledge

Graduates can characterize advanced and contemporary technologies of iron and steel production, foundry technology and forming technology of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. They have a good command of the technological principles of the iron and steel production, foundry technology and technology of materials forming. Based on their professional specialization, consisting of an appropriate choice of study courses, graduates are able to demonstrate a more profound knowledge of the theoretical principles related to the technology of iron or steel production, foundry, and materials forming technologies of foundry or modelling of forming processes. Graduates are able to use methods of statistical analysis and data processing. They can also use advanced modelling methods of steel production technology or foundry technology, or modelling of forming processes at the advanced level. Graduates can demonstrate basic knowledge of technical materials, production of non-ferrous metals, thermal processes in industrial furnaces, methods of planning and quality enhancement, and managerial economics.

Skills

Based on the selected study specialization, graduates are able to independently solve tasks in the field of current technologies of iron and steel production, foundry, or forming of materials. They are able, to a greater extent, to apply advanced methods of theoretical and experimental research for the technologies of iron and steel production, foundry or forming of materials. Graduates are able to apply the methods of statistical analysis, advanced numerical modelling methods, as well as basic principles of managerial economics to solve individual tasks.

General Competencies

Graduates have developed soft skills on a sufficient level. They have a good command of at least one foreign language at the B1-B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and are prepared for teamwork.
