22.04.02 Metallurgy (Technology and Digital Models of Thermal and Thermomechanical Treatment)

Major: Technology and Digital Models of Thermal and Thermomechanical Treatment

Level: Master’s degree programme

Duration of training: 2 years

Degree certificate: Diploma

Mode of study: Full time

Language of study: Russian

Programme manager: Sergei Rushchits, Doctor of Sciences (Physics and Mathematics), Associate Professor

Description of the educational programme

This programme aims at training highly qualified specialists (metal scientists), who are in demand at enterprises in the metallurgical industry of the Ural region. While mastering this programme, the students are preparing to solve tasks of research-and-development and technological activity. This Master’s degree programme implies the format of project-based learning with in-depth training of the Master’s degree students for their professional activity through their direct participation in solving the tasks on controlling the structure and properties of the items produced from metal materials.

The scientific goal of the project being fulfilled is to create computer (digital) models of the thermomechanical and/or thermal treatment of the piping products based on the physical simulation of the technological processes. In the course of fulfilling the project the students will conduct the experimental research on the deformation behaviour of the pipe steels, will study the evolution of the structure of the pipe steels in the process of hot rolling and/or thermal treatment. Based on the experimental research, digital models will be created allowing to optimize the modes of the technological processes of rolling and thermal treatment, and thus, to improve the quality of the manufactured products. The possibilities of the new methods of thermomechanical and thermal treatment will be studied for the pipes in the oil-and-gas industry.

The experimental part of the project-based learning will be fulfilled with the use of modern equipment, including the Gleeble 3800 physical simulator of thermomechanical processes, the complex of digital optical microscopy, and the furnace and testing equipment of the Department of Materials Science, Physical and Chemical Properties of Materials. A series of research and testing will be conducted at the ChelPipe's Testing Centre.
