Nowadays, there is no technical master program in Suriname in mechanical engineering that contributes to industrial improvement and sustainable development of the country, thereby PTC assumed this task and offers the opportunity of associating each Master Student with the solution of industrial problems through the introduction and immediate implementation of the obtained results of the assigned works.
The graduate program in ‘Materials & Manufacturing Engineering’ is developed together with the Faculty members and post-baccalaureate students into 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 and manufacturing engineering program also offers abundant opportunity to develop strong analytical skills and problem-solving abilities, for example through the incorporation of case studies and mini-projects that familiarize the student with the development, processing, characterization and evaluation of the most important material families: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites; with their machining and reliability. Moreover, practical experience will be extended in all topics.
At the same time this program is oriented to make a strong contribution to the framework in Suriname with the authorities, business and important projects. The comprehensive theory forms the foundation for the advancement of expertise and the structure of knowledge for the individual to then focus on the practice. The Master’s Program takes place entirely in Suriname, with a substantive supplement, an international orientation through a visit to Cuba in order to establish academic and professional interchanges with the industrial sector, graduated masters and students of different specialties within the mechanical engineering.
The Master's program addresses bachelors, engineers or scientists with an undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline. Applications are accepted from students who have completed, or will be graduate engineers in the general area of Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, and Reliability Engineering. Reliability Engineering is not a subject which is adequately covered in most undergraduate degrees, so this Master’s program conveys together those topics relating to the safety and reliability of engineering products and systems, including the legislative framework, in an integrated approach. However, the department’s admission criteria are not specific in this regard, and talented students with backgrounds in other branches of engineering or in science may advance entry.
After successfully finalizing this course and defend your thesis, you will receive the Master of Engineering degree (MEng.) in ‘Materials & Manufacturing’. Starting your own business is the next step!
