The right choice and processing of materials determine the quality, design and durability of practically every product. Whether sports equipment (e.g. skis, tennis rackets…), mobile phone covers, high-tech windows, motor vehicle and aircraft parts or materials for components of buildings, the list is endless. The degree course Materials and Process Engineering concentrates on this engineering field of the future with extraordinary career prospects, both at home and abroad.
The B.Sc. course in Materials and Process Engineering is complete in itself. At the same time it is ideal preparation for the complementary M.Sc. course also offered by our School of Engineering and Environmental Sciences.
The B.Sc. course focuses on the following areas: Materials, Materials Testing, Damage Analysis, CAE (Computer Aided Engineering and Simulation), Processing and Production Processes, Processing and Production Plants, Joining/ Connection/Adhesion Technologies, Corrosion, Wear, Surface Engineering, Automation, Quality Management, Economics, Law, Social Competence.
Students specialise in either Plastics or Metals as the course progresses. Alongside the broad and applications-oriented range of subjects of a technical/engineering nature, relevant aspects of non-technical subjects essential for a career in modern industry are also covered comprehensively: Business Economics, Project Management, Social Competence, Vocational English.
In Upper Austria the core competences of countless companies are directly related to this field. The ever increasing number of Austrian companies operating abroad and the increasingly multi-national nature and networking of companies in the globalised economy also mean increasing international opportunities for graduates who are experts in materials.
The essential questions which this course tries to answer are:
- From which materials should I make my product?
- How can I process these materials in order to ensure a quality product which is aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting?
- How can I optimise the product, the production process and the equipment for processing the materials?
- In the case of failure, how can a material or component be improved?
Engineers who can provide answers to these questions are much sought after, both in this region and internationally! Especially in the thriving business location which is Upper Austria , this degree programme specialising in Plastics and Metals opens many doors for graduates.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
