Metallurgical Engineering is concerned with the development, production, and processing of ferrous, non-ferrous, and mineral materials. It is the basis for innovative products and new technological developments in the fields of industry, technology, and medicine. Research in this department focuses on materials design. It includes general research to ascertain the structure of and opportunities for optimising known materials (e.g. steel, aluminium, magnesium, glass, ceramic, etc.). Scientists in this division also deal with issues relating to surface technology, recycling, manufacturing, and processing using state-of-the-art production processes including quality assurance inspections.
The programme provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of metallurgical engineering. Its particular focus is on industrial R&D practices and modern manufacturing processes. The programme aims at enhancing the students' ability to design and manage projects and to lead and co-ordinate project teams.
This programme focuses on all disciplines within Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Technology. The basis is formed by six basic courses: Thermochemistry, Physical Metallurgy, Fabrication Technology of Metals, Metallurgy and Recycling, Mineral Materials, and Metallic Materials. Additionally, at the beginning of their studies students have to select their individual specialisation and study majors.
