Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Knowledge and comprehension of properties and utilizationation of minerals and rocks. The objective is knowledge of silicates physical a chemical properties, as the most important mineral class and comprehension of its attachment on industrial applications. Significant objective is competence to synthesis theoretical informations and its application in processes of silicate technologies. Students should learn analysed the problem, combined theoretical knowledges with its practical utilisation, sumarised obtained knowledges, interpreted findings from the solutions practical problems point of view, generalised created conclusions.
