Description

General description

Materials Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of science, which analyses the influence of materials’ chemical and physical structure on their electrical, mechanical, optical, surface, chemical, magnetic and thermal properties as well as on various combinations of those properties. Materials engineering comprises a number of modern physical and chemical research techniques, which may be used to characterise both the structure and properties of materials. These techniques aim at studying the influence of structure on materials properties, in particular those, which are practically used in various technologies. This enables working out methods of obtaining materials featuring precisely defined practical properties. These studies influence not only the planned structure of end products but also help to develop effective methods of their production and processing. The research carried out within materials engineering leads to working out new materials, although it is commonly applied also to improve materials already used.

Speciality: Materials Science

The education contents delivered within the ‘materials science’ speciality enable educating specialists equipped with the knowledge of the most recent achievements of physics, chemistry and metallurgy related to obtaining modern materials and modelling them, taking into account the modern manufacturing technologies (e.g. nanotechnologies). Graduates of this speciality have the skill of comprehensive functional assessment of diverse material groups, of current analysis of their practical parameters, important for the processes of materials manufacturing and processing for specific applications. Students during the studies acquire the skill of using the scientific-technical information and have the knowledge allowing an efficient communication with teams of people. Graduates have the knowledge of IT and IT systems implementation, are prepared to participate in the work that requires the application and obtaining of modern materials, in industry, in research and service establishments as well as in small and medium-size enterprises. Moreover, having an in-depth knowledge of basic sciences and general knowledge of materials technology, they are capable of effective communication both with engineers employed in business entities and organisations and also with the scientific staff working on modern materials.

Speciality: Biomaterials

The ‘Biomaterials’ speciality extends and makes the hitherto offer of Materials Engineering studies more attractive. The education contents delivered within the speciality are oriented towards the specific nature of materials for application in medicine, stomatology and veterinary science. The progress continuing in medicine imposes higher and higher requirements on biomaterials properties, including their biocompatibility. The main issues related to biomaterials include: materials choice for implants and their applications, the influence of a living body environment on the implant behaviour, basic assumptions of bioavailability, tissue reaction mechanisms, biophysical, biochemical and biomechanical requirements imposed on implants, corrosion and abrasion as well as degradation of diverse biomaterials, technologies for surface layers application on implants, implants structural issues. All this forces educating highly specialised employees, scientific and technical staff working on designing, modelling, studying the properties and structure as well as placing biomaterials on the market. Graduates of this speciality will fill the gap existing on the market for a long time, between engineers involved in biomaterials and doctors applying such materials in practice.

Career opportunities

Graduates obtain the skills to use technical information and are prepared for work supporting materials engineering design. They also gain the knowledge of research methodology and team management in industrial environments and small and medium-size enterprises related to engineering materials manufacturing and processing. Graduates are prepared to work in a variety of environments: industrial enterprises – manufacturing, processing or using engineering materials, small and medium-size businesses - including enterprises which trade engineering materials and instruments for testing; research institutions and R&D centers; institutions involved in counselling and dissemination of knowledge in the field of materials engineering, materials technology and computer technology; and design and consultancy offices and institutions developing and operating computer IT systems used in materials engineering. Students will acquire an interdisciplinary scope of knowledge in the fields of team management for research and industrial activities, operation of IT and computer systems for engineering work and the selection of materials and manufacturing technologies. The graduates are prepared to undertake creative initiatives and make decisions on materials engineering and technologies, as well as independently run a business with particular focus on the areas which combine materials engineering, medicine and veterinary science.

The candidate for studies is obliged to submit an appropriate medical certificate confirming the lack of contradictions to undertaking studies in this field.

Admissions criteria for candidates with "new" Polish maturity exam (issued after 2005)

Studies in English

The qualification covers competition of maturity diplomas— results in the below-indicated subjects taken during the maturity exam in the written part are considered:

Mathematics

Higher of the scores:

– basic

level x 1

or

– extended level x 2

Physics and astronomy

Higher of the scores:

– basic

level x 1

or

– extended level x 2

Computer and Information Sciences

Higher of the scores:

– basic

level x 1

or

– extended level x 2

English

Higher of the scores:

– basic

level x 1

or

– extended level x 2

Weight  a = 25%

Weight b = 25%

Weight c = 25%

Weight d = 25%

 

Method of calculating points (candidate's result):

WK = a x M + b x F + c x I + d x A

where:

WK – candidate's final result;

M – result in maths at the basic or extended level,

F – result in physics and astronomy at the basic or extended level (F=0 in case the candidate did not take an exam in physics and astronomy),

I – result in computer and information sciences at the basic or extended level (I=0 in case the candidate did not take an exam in computer and information sciences),

A – result in English at the basic or extended level.

Comments:    

  • The place on the ranking list created on the basis of the candidate’s result determines qualification for studies (WK).
  • If the number of candidates does not exceed the established limit of places, all candidates who obtained a result above 0 will be qualified.
  • If a candidate passed a given subject on the maturity exam on both levels, the result in the level which after multiplication through the relevant weight and converter was more beneficial for the candidate will be considered.
  • The result of the bi-lingual exam in a foreign modern language will be calculated into the result at the extended level by multiplying it by 4/3; of such obtained number exceeds 100, the result in this language is established as 100.
  • If a candidate did not take a given subject during the maturity exam, he or she will obtain zero points but may attend the qualification procedure, provided he or she obtained a result exceeding 0% in at least one subject (maths, physics and astronomy, computer and information sciences, English) on the maturity diploma.

The candidate is obliged to submit the relevant Medical certificate regarding lack of health counterindications for the commencement of studies in the given programme.

Admissions criteria for candidates with "old" Polish maturity exam (issued before 2005)

Grades (results) obtained at maturity exams by candidates who passed the maturity exam before 2004 (the so-called old maturity exam), will be calculated proportionally to the scale of the new maturity exam in the following way:

Maturity exam until 1991

(grade - percentages)

Maturity exam after 1991

(grade - percentages)

6 – 100 %

5 – 100 %

5 – 90 %

4 – 85 %

4 – 75 %

3 – 40 %  

3 – 50 %

2 – 30 %

Points in the following subjects are taken into consideration: maths, physics or physics and astronomy, computer and information sciences and English passed by the candidate in a written form (if the exam was written) or in an oral form (no written part of the exam) placed on the maturity diploma and on the certificated issued by OKE.

After calculation of grades into points the candidate's result calculation (WK) as specified in the point for the new maturity exam.

Note:

  • If on the maturity diploma for the selected subject no level of the exam has been specified (basic or extended), it will be assumed that the level was basic.

The candidate is obliged to submit the relevant Medical certificate regarding lack of health counterindications for the commencement of studies in the given programme.
