Degree Course Characteristics

Fyzikalni inzenyrstvi materialu Ing 02 ysical Engineering of Materials is an interdisciplinary degree course based on the synthesis of applied mechanics and materials science. It emphasizes detection of the response of bodies and construction elements to loading, increase in temperature, surrounding media, and other side effects. This is closely linked with the disintegration processes related to mechanical and structural properties of materials. This knowledge is indispensable for solving problems of development of new materials and technologies, of operational parameters, life span, and reliability of actual construction elements, disturbance analysis, etc. Students are more deeply acquainted with physics of metals, physical metallurgy, plasticity, continuum dynamics, fracture mechanics, applications of experimental methods, mathematical modelling, etc. The course programme consists of a range of courses of theoretical, experimental, and informational character and is continuously updated. An important part of the programme is individualized student projects usually reflecting the scientific and research activity of the department or members of institutions cooperating in the solutions of grant projects or in contracted research. Students are also trained to perfect their audiovisual or written presentations of their results, because they often co-author papers published in professional periodicals or presented at conferences. Thus, graduates are highly qualified professionals ready to start their career in science, research, or industry.

Graduate´s Profile

Fyzikalni inzenyrstvi materialu Ing 01 This degree course is unique in being of interdisciplinary character. Graduates will have acquired a thorough knowledge of advanced sections of applied physics focused mainly on physical metallurgy, modern methods of materials assessment, and engineering mechanics, as well as selected topics of applied mathematics and informatics. The knowledge obtained is in close relation with the needs of science, research, and engineering.

Graduates are skilled in creative applications of the theory and experimental methods to tackling a wide range of issues of science, research, and engineering, namely analysis of the physics of the issue in question and engineering approach to its solution. Next to the knowledge acquired, typical skills of graduates are adaptability, quick orientation in new interdisciplinary issues, critical analysis of problems, analytical or critical computer-based treatment of a problem, synthesis of findings, and high-quality oral and written presentation of the results obtained. Students´ skills also include the sense of responsibility for the work done and decisions made, because both can have far-reaching consequences for the economy, ecology, and the life of society.

Due to their skills, knowledge, analytical and systematic approach to problems, and computer competency, graduates are well prepared for jobs in research, industry, the private sector, and even institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, higher education, and research and development centres of big companies or other research institutions. Among others, they can occupy positions in non-nuclear and nuclear power generation, in aircraft or transport industry, and even managerial posts. Foreign language training has prepared graduates for cooperation with partners abroad.
