B.Sc. Metallurgy and Metal Forming

Program Duration

6 Semesters (3 Years)

Credit Points


Beginning of Program

winter semester


In the content of this course of studies, the production of metallic materials from ores using metallurgical procedures as well as their refinement, e.g. in steel plants and the further processing through continuous casting and forming are in the foreground. To this belong, besides the technologies used for steel production and processing, the NE-metals technologies. On the other hand a focus is placed on the forming production processes of the primary and secondary forming including their processing. This includes both hot and cold forming methods of the iron and steel industry without forgetting the NE-metal industry, and the forming methods from the production engineering in the sheet- and cold forming domains.

The graduates are qualified for jobs in the whole technology fields in steel and iron industries like ore dressing, sinter plants, blast furnace and steel plants, continuous casting and mill equipment for the processing of continuous cast materials.
