The Master degree of study programme Materials Engineering is based on the present state of science and technology in the field of materials (metallic materials, plastics, ceramics, glasses, composites), used in practice. The graduate has the advanced knowledge about influence of chemical composition and structure of materials on mechanical, technological and utility properties of materials of semi-products and final products. He/she has the knowledge about advanced materials and very special materials as nanomaterials, biomaterials, biodegradable materials, memory-shape materials, metallic foams, superconductors, materials for high-temperature applications, and others. He/she knows the advanced methods of materials production and technological processing of materials to form the semi-products, components and final products (vacuum technology, plasma and laser technologies, electron beam technologies, powder metallurgy, surface modifications, nanotechnologies). He/she is educated in modelling of phase equilibria in materials and simulations of production and processing of materials. He/she is skilled in analysis of structure and phase composition of materials (scanning and transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and others) and special techniques of testing of materials properties, as fracture mechanics, fatigue testing, creep properties, corrosion testing, and others. He/she knows the main degradation processes and their influence on the properties of materials.

The graduate is ready to enter the labour market in the field of testing of materials using advanced techniques, cooperation with engineers and technology experts in planning and processing of materials to components, tools and products. High-rated graduates can continue in education in Doctoral study in the study branch Materials or related study branches
