About the program

The program is aimed at training specialists responsible for integrated development of technological processes at all stages of the product life cycle, in order to meet the demands of customers and users. This product-oriented approach requires an understanding of the fundamental relationship between the composition and structure of materials, technological modes of production and product performance characteristics, and therefore helps the student develop systematic and analytical thinking.

Graduates are able to successfully solve problems associated with controlling the structure and properties of metallic materials during plastic forming, as well as to develop new and improve existing technologies of metal and alloys forming under pressure. Key features of the program are backed up by developments in the field of highly efficient technological processes and equipment based on new physical phenomena. Such processes include high-energy pulse deformation methods, local deformation methods, and the combination of these methods. Particular attention is paid to the design methods of the above technologies, which use mathematical modeling of processes based on modern advances in solid mechanics and plasticity theory. The classes are scheduled in the evening, so that the students could combine work and study.

Intended learning outcomes

In this program, students undergo advanced training in materials science, computer modeling and process optimization, and manufacturing processes automation and robotization.

Graduates of the program are in demand in various industries and successfully pursue scientific careers in creating new generations of materials and their processing technologies: from rocket and space technology, nuclear industry, and propulsion engineering, to biocompatible materials for personalized medicine and implantology.
