Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student should learn elementary procedures and methods using at problem solution of material science. To make sure of lectured topic understanding. To apply gained knowledge in practice.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject familiarizes students with an elementary knowledge about qualities and structure of moust common constructional materials. Topic of lectures is explanation of atomic laws and molecular structure and constitution crystals, respective amorphous materials. As well as explanation of stress-strain relations and degradation process.
