Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To list the overview of the basic methods of surface treatment materials. Explain the principles of individual methods and their application in terms of the appropriateness of procedures for the materials. Propose optimal procedures for surface treatment in order to increase the resistance of the analyzed material.
