Study programme Metallurgical engineering

About study programme

The study program is aimed at educating specialists for modern metallurgy and engineering. Initially, basic common theoretical courses are taught, suitably complemented by courses in, for example, materials science, management and quality management. The study program also covers the subjects of iron and steel production, foundry and bulk forming. The study program is characterized by the close interconnection of the pedagogical process with the often unique experimental basis and the use of computer technology in process modeling.
