Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Ability - to describe material behaviour during technological processes - to apply theoritical knowled to development of new materials - to integrate material properties in technological design - to predict properties of metalic and non-metalic materials and alloys

Teaching methods



Student acquires detailed knowledge of the properties of engineering materials including modern and unconventional materials. They will become familiar with steels with special properties, non-ferrous alloys, modern plastics, composites, ceramics, metallic glass, shape memory materials and nanomaterials. An important part of the subject is heat treatment technology including substrate treatment and thermomechanical processing.
