Qualification level

SQF Level: SQF 8
EQF Level: EQF 7
EOVK Level: Second level

Learning outcomes:

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • demonstrate understanding of lifelong learning needs;
  • participate in multidisciplinary groups to address and resolve technical difficulties and raise awareness of the importance of administrative requirements, accuracy and cooperation;

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate understanding of tribological interfaces and systems and the mutual relations of parameters and
  • determine key effects from the nano level to the macro level;
  • develop theoretical and experimental pathways for the study and resolution of tribological problems;
  • incorporate multidisciplinary requirements into a coordinated solution that combines knowledge from various fields related to tribology;
  • demonstrate autonomous thinking, creativity and problem-solving ability in tribological groups with individual responsibility;
  • work as professional engineers and researchers in multicultural and interdisciplinary groups in the broader field of tribology, surfaces, interfaces and maintenance;
  • demonstrate familiarity with industrial requirements and the specifics of the industrial sector and the academic world;
  • assess, develop and apply scientific information and knowledge about tribological problems to address problems in industry;
  • communicate with experts with an academic and industrial background via written documents, presentations and debates;
  • demonstrate familiarity with mechanical systems, materials and lubricants in manufacturing processes, surface and oil analyses; use and interpret experimental techniques and results to address tribological problems (tribometers, microscopes, spectrometers, profilometers, etc.);

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

Progress:

In order to progress from the first year to the second year, students must have completed at least 60 credits; in order to complete the programme they must complete a further 60 credits and a master's thesis (i.e. a total of 120 credits across the entire programme).
