Specific Arrangements for the Recognition of Prior Learning
Informal learning - max. 60% of credits gained in prior lifelong learning can be recognized, as determined by the Dean of the Faculty.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished higher education in Bachelor's degree programme.
Regulations:
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VŠB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Branch
The main emphasis in graduate education in the field of Applied Mechanics is on the readiness and ability to develop, elaborate and practical use of modern computational and experimental approaches to solve technical problems. Graduates will be able to perform static, kinematic and dynamic analysis of mechanisms and structures, to apply fracture mechanics in the assessment of limit states of components and structures, to assess the reliability and durability of machines, temperature loading, deal with technical tasks, flow dynamics and hydro-thermodynamic systems and heat and mass transfer. They will be able to exploit and further develop computer support in the design, planning and research activities for specific applications. Gained deeper knowledge of the core disciplines of mechanical engineering creates a broad basis for creative applications in engineering and other professional growth through various forms of lifelong learning.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Knowledge:
Graduates gain in-depth knowledge about the mechanics of solid bodies, strength and elasticity. In addition to the basic areas of mechanics, mastered in the framework of the Bc.(bachelor) study, they deal with questions of fracture mechanics, plasticity, evaluation of the limiting states of parts and structures, examination of the reliability and operational life of machines, analyzing thermal loading, technical flow tasks, dynamics, hydro-mechanical and thermo-mechanical systems and the transfer of heat and mass. Graduates also understand the options, conditions and restrictions on the use of knowledge-related fields.
Skills:
In specific applications, graduates will be able to use and further develop computer aids in design, structural and research and development activities. However, the main aim is focused on the preparation and ability to develop, elaborate on and practically use computerized procedures in solving technical problems. Using expert knowledge they will be able to independently identify and creatively solve theoretical or practical problem in the field, independently solve complex problems using the selected theories, concepts and methods of the field and use some of the most advanced research approaches in the field in a manner allowing to obtain new original information.
General competencies:
Graduates will be able to independently and responsibly to decide on new or changing context or radically changing environment, taking into account the wider social implications of decisions. By developing relationships and resources available they are able to define terms of reference for professional activities, coordinate them, and bear ultimate responsibility for their results. Graduates will be able to communicate clearly and persuasively both professionals and the wider public, their own professional opinions and use their professional knowledge, professional skills and general competence in at least one foreign language. In terms of teamwork, a student gets the ability to plan, promote and manage the use of theoretical knowledge, gaining additional industry expertise, skills and competencies of other team members.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Graduates find employment as calculation specialists, designers and development staff in engineering companies and further after increasing their qualification in doctoral studies as scientific-research staff.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Examination regulations, assesment and grading are described in the Study and Examination Rules.
