MSc in Light Metals, Silicon and Ferroalloy Production
- About the Programme
Industrial production of light metals, silicon and ferroalloys based on Norwegian expertise and technology couples a high level of societal awareness to manufacturing of value-added products.
This study programme can be described as the study of processes and industrial aspects of high temperature production of metals from their stable oxides; including recycling, environmental and energy related issues.
Candidates who have completed their study in the program: "Light Metals, Silicon and Ferroalloy Production" shall have:
- Thorough knowledge of the manufacturing and refining processes that are important for industrial production of silicon, ferro alloys, light metals, including carbothermal processes, electrolysis and refining processes
- In-depth knowledge and understanding of what determines chemical equilibrium, how this can be described by Gibbs energy functions and phase diagrams, and its significance in the development and operation of high temperature industrial processes
- Knowledge of industrial applications of transport phenomena like heat and mass transfer for single phase and multiphase systems
- Application skills for the combination of thermodynamics, reaction kinetics and transport phenomena with careful attention to economics and environmental issues to produce metals from natural and manmade recourses
All courses are given in English and are directly related to electrochemistry, pyrometallurgy and materials technology.
The students will study and perform industry related research projects through close cooperation between university and industry.
