At present, there is no technical master program in Suriname in Mechanical Engineering that contributes to industrial improvement and sustainable development of the country. Baring this in mind PTC took it upon herself to develop a program through which students are now offered the opportunity of obtaining a Master’s degree within this field. Graduates of this program will be competent in coming up with solutions to industrial problems through the introduction and immediate implementation of the obtained results of the assigned works.
The graduate program in ‘Materials & Manufacturing Engineering’ was developed together with the Faculty members and post-baccalaureate students, a community of scholars with a common interest in innovation, creativity and advanced professional study. This program is composed of a set of basic and core courses covering both the fundamentals and principles of Materials and Manufacturing Engineering in combination with more specialized option-specific courses and a number of electives.
The Materials & Manufacturing Engineering program also offers abundant opportunity to develop strong analytical skills and problem-solving abilities. Student are familiarized with the development, processing, characterization and evaluation of the most important material families: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites with their machining through case studies and mini projects. Moreover, practical experience will be enhanced in all topics.
The comprehensive theory forms the foundation for the advancement of expertise and the structure of knowledge for the individual to then focus on the practical application. The Master’s program takes place entirely in Suriname, with a substantive supplement, an international orientation through a visit to Cuba. During this trip students will be able to establish academic and professional exchanges with the industrial sector, graduated masters and students of different specialities within the mechanical engineering.
The program provides education and training for graduate engineers in the general area of Materials Engineering, and Manufacturing Engineering, with a specializations in Machining.
After successful completion of the program, graduates from the specialization Machining will be able to:
- produce new materials to solve materials challenges in sectors such as transport, energy and agriculture
- characterize new materials to solve materials challenges in sectors such as transport, energy and agriculture
- model new materials to solve materials challenges in sectors such as transport, energy and agriculture
- develop new materials to solve materials challenges in sectors such as transport, energy and agriculture
- improve the properties of existing materials
- recycle materials after having finished their life cycle
- design components emphasizing on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods
- develop components emphasizing on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods
- produce components emphasizing on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods
- offer consultations on the design, development and production of components emphasizing on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods.
Thus, this Master’s program aims to deliver highly-qualified professionals whom can solve mechanical engineering problems in the production and services with wide use of ICT. The working language is English.
The Master’s program addresses bachelors, engineers or researchers with an undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline.
Applications are accepted from students whom have completed, or will be graduate engineers in the general area of Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, and other related branches.
After successfully finalizing this coursework and defense of your thesis, you will receive the Master of Engineering (MEng.) degree in Materials & Manufacturing Engineering’. Starting your own business is the next step!
Lector Master Program
Eleno Alfonso Brindis, PhD
Miss Negesty Winter, LLM
The Master’s program is a part-time training and offers you the opportunity at a part time training. Career prospects to expand or change. Part-time study offers the advantage to students of working during the daytime and combining this with their studies. In addition, part-time training is tailored to hands-on practice, allowing you to apply the study material directly to your daily work.
Specialization in Machining
The program distinguishes itself by practical assignments, and being competency-oriented, through which it will contribute directly to student development. The study material will take into account the student’s working context and the comprehensive social context.
Core aspects of the program and competencies
In the next tale each credit ECTS represents 28 hours of study. Each course corresponds to a total of 84 hours, of which 36 are spent on lectures.
