Profile of the Programme
The Bachelor’s study branches have a multidisciplinary character and combine natural-science, technical, technological and economic sciences focusing on the issue of mineral resources. The studies of Mineral Raw Materials comprise a whole number of fields of study, which are grounded in modern approaches to extraction and exploitation of raw material resources in a wide social context with respect to the environmental impacts and environmental protection, including recycling technologies and water management. Further to processing technologies, students are offered modern fields of study grounded in the knowledge of modern processing biotechnologies, application of the latest knowledge of physics on the structure and treatment of materials and fields of study focused on economics, management and control in the branch of mineral raw materials.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Knowledge:
Students gain expert knowledge of methods that are required for the performance of independent professions. They learn technical terminology of the field in question. They are able to use their theoretical knowledge, on which the methods are based, in the professional practice. Students acquire knowledge concerning the principles of modern technologies of the studied fields. Having gained some experience, the natural-science, technical and technological subjects along with learning a foreign language enable the graduates to find jobs in other branches too, as well as in numerous state or private companies and institutions. The system of university subjects provides essential understanding of the issue and prepares students for a further career growth.
Skills:
On the grounds of a generally defined task, making use of their expertise, the graduates of the Bachelor’s study programme of Mineral Resources are able to deal with practical matters in the field. Next, they are capable of searching for, sorting and interpreting information relevant for the solution of a specified practical problem. Graduates can also use particular fundamental research procedures in the field in the extent necessary to deal with practical tasks in the field. Selecting a suitable topic of their Bachelor’s thesis, students may expand their expertise and concentrate more on the field of study.
General competencies:
Graduates are able to apply their expert knowledge in practice. They can work independently and responsibly deal with simple technological matters. Graduates are capable of comprehensible and persuasive communication of their own opinions, formed during the studies, to other colleagues in the team. They can work with information sources, understand professional terminology and synthetically evaluate experimental results and be responsible for them. Next, graduates are fully prepared for the follow-up Master’s Studies.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Graduates are specialists able to deal with basic process technologies connected with processing of mineral resources, which includes a spectrum of fields from raw material extraction and their processing, via the production all the way to the product consumption and environmental protection. They may find jobs in laboratories of various companies or institutes, in the public administration and its auditing bodies. The technical grounds of the studies enable the graduates to find jobs directly in the industry, in various technical fields or other interdisciplinary branches. They may also continue studying in the follow-up Master’s Studies.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
