A MS program Advanced Metallic Materials and Engineering offers high-quality postgraduate education in mechanical and aerospace engineering, and non-ferrous physical metallurgy.

Total amount of Academic Credits: 120 credits.

Academic Credits for R&D work and dissertation: 45 credits.

Academic Credits for educational courses: 75 credits.


Here are a few benefits the present program can bring. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • develop new materials and technologies;
  • build models of structure and properties evolution during treatment of alloys and use the models for prediction and calculation of properties;
  • use multicomponent phase diagrams for optimization of alloy composition and heat treatment;
  • detect causes of the production defects and breaking of the metallic constructions during operation;
  • work with literature and patents for obtaining of the patentability and technical level of the product;
  • research in the field of the physical metallurgy;
  • solve the theoretical and applied problems of the physical metallurgy using system approach;
  • choose methods and tests for estimation of alloys physical, mechanical, operational properties and structure;
  • use data bases, computer programs, and CAD/CAM software for the materials production problems solving;
  • create technical documentation, scientific reports concluding the results of the investigation.

During their study, students will actively use technical equipment that will help them test their theoretical knowledge in experimental setting. The educational process is based on the modular system, which allows students to choose the courses they deem necessary and beneficial for their future career from a total number of courses offered by the program.

The program includes the following parts:

1. Lectures and practice:

a.Basic training includes lectures and practical classes necessary to attain sufficient level of knowledge for studying in Masters school. Introductory classes and lectures held simultaneously with core educational courses and designed mostly for BS students who need supplementary knowledge base to succeed in the current program.

b.Core courses consist of a number lectures and practical training on fundamental and recent achievements in physical metallurgy, methods of investigation, physical and mathematical modeling of the structure and properties of metallic materials (including application of modern thermomechanical simulators of metallurgical processes Gleeble 3800).

c. The elective part of the educational program includes special courses of physical metallurgy such as:

1. Functional metal matrix composites; 2. Corrosion and protection of the metallic materials; 3. Advanced technologies of the metallic materials production; 4. Functional metallic materials: structure, properties and application; 5. Thermal and thermomechanical treatment of special steels and alloys; 6. Development of metallic materials; 7. Thermodynamic computation and analysis of phase diagrams of multicomponent systems; 8. Modern equipment and techniques for investigation of structure and properties of metallic alloys.

2.Scientific work under the supervision of senior staff of master school includes theoretical and experimental investigations, publication of the results in scientific journals, presentations and speeches at conferences for young scientists and at scientific and research seminars. Main directions of scientific researches include:

  • advanced aluminum alloys;
  • superplasticity of metallic materials;
  • modeling and simulation in physical metallurgy;
  • new non-ferrous metal matrix composites;
  • biocompatible materials and shape memory alloys.

Working at a scientific paper allows students to:

  • implement innovational techniques of necessary alloys properties achievement;
  • model and analyze structure and properties formation of the metallic details during production and application;
  • operate with modern equipment for mechanical and physical testing of metallic materials;
  • prepare the specimens of commercial and new metallic materials for analysis theirs structure and properties;
  • analyze the experimental results using equipment software and special computer programs.

3. Additional training in Russian and foreign universities and companies.
