Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished secondary education with secondary school-leaving exam.
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VSB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The aim of Nanotechnology study is to provide education that prepares graduates for work in laboratory with technicians, professional physicist and chemists in industry, in scientific research and technology departments of companies deals with modern technologies, especially nanotechnologies.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The graduate has theoretical knowledge of basic natural science – mathematics, physics and chemistry. He is able to use his knowledge in practical application of preparation method and properties of nanomaterials including the environmental impact of their use. He knows and can use modern methods of characterization nanomaterials.
The graduate has professional skills in the field of nanomaterials preparation, method of characterization and practical application of nanomaterials. He can use instrumental techniques that is necessary for quantification of selected chemical and physical properties od nanomaterials. He can sort his knowledge and interpret information and can apply it for materials research in industrial practice and laboratories of research institutes focused on modern technologies, especially nanotechnologies.
General competencies:
The graduate can make independent decisions of partial tasks and look for a solution of practical problems associated with the characterization and nanomaterials preparation. He can also formulate and interpret the results of experiments. He is familiar with professional, especially foreign language literature. He is able to communicate in one foreign language. The graduate find employment in industrial companies and research organizations such as operator of sophisticated instruments (electron microscope, atomic force microscope), technologist or member of research teams.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Typical job positions: instrument operator, specialist for science and research, technologist, technician. Graduates can operate in laboratories and departments of companies deals with nanomaterials preparation or testing their properties. They can also work in research organizations as qualified assistants of nanomaterials preparation or as operator of special devices used in characterization of materials and nanomaterials. After graduation, they can also continue to master studies of Nanotechnology or study of similar field focused on materials.
