Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

to gain knowledge among structure, phase composition and properties of special inorganic non-metallic materials - to solve the possibility and selection proces of preparation materials with defined properties -characterize the relationship between preparation and technological flows of production -orientation in areas of special materials and their application in practice

Teaching methods

Project work


The subject is focused on the theoretical and practical education in special and technical ceramics. Students will learn the basic concepts, materials, relationship between structure and properties, processes and technology in the processing of preparing construction, functional and bioceramics, melted and carbon materials and with special glasses and non-traditional methods of preparation of glass. At the same time to hear about the use of these materials in practice their further development.
