Studies at the faculty
The Slovak University of Technology (STU) in Bratislava comprises seven faculties. The Faculty of Materials Science and Technology (MTF) with the campus in Trnava is one of them. It educates versatile and flexible graduates who perform successfully in a wide scope of professions.

Besides Trnava, the Faculty provides bachelor study in the detached workplace located in Dubnica nad Váhom, in Brezno, in Levice to satisfy the occupational needs of the job market. There students study two semesters and after continue of study in Trnava. The education has to be accomplished in Trnava.

The Faculty admits applicants based on the generally binding legislation and the STU MTF internal legislation – Dean’s Regulation approved by the Faculty Academic Senate for the current academic year. In the admission process, the involvement of recruitment agencies/entities is neither expected nor desirable. Applicants are required to follow the instructions for study application publicised on the Faculty website and, if necessary, communicate exclusively with the STU MTF Registrar’s Section.

Master degree graduates will find jobs as senior workers in the field of research and development, production, as well as in the services and management of the state and private enterprises.

Overview of graduate unemployment

Application of graduates in practice would be for candidates to study one of the key criteria in their selection. The Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport SR therefore prepared an overview of the application of university graduates in the labor market. In a table MŠVVaŠSR shows that graduates of the Slovak university of Technology are needed on the labour  market.
