Aluminium is, after iron, the second most useful metal technically speaking. The properties of aluminium and its alloys like: small specific density, high strength, an advantageous relationship between strength and specific density, electrical and thermical conductivity, excellent formability, corrosion resistance and simple and cheap recycling – enable its application in all technically important sectors like: transport, building, construction, machinery, electrical, packaging and consumer durable objects. Because of the increasing use and the constant improvements to the properties and manufacturing processes, there appears, like with iron, the need for deeper treatment of the topics in the research of aluminium as an independent subject. In the framework of this course, students will obtain knowledge about properties of aluminium materials in detail and about the processes from production to finalisation and application. Post-graduate bachelors of this field will have the possibility to gain employment in firms producing and working aluminium, in foundries in the metal-working industry and in scientific institutions.
