Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Graduates will extend their knowledge of the relationships between the structure of metallic and non-metallic materials and their properties. They learn to control the structure to increase the utility of technical materials. They can handle the mechanisms rapid solidification, mechanical alloying, oxidic dispersion strengthen. The can evaluate the utility properties of technical materials. They will learn to decide on the choice of technical materials for the given conditions of use.

Basic physical engineering characteristics of progressive metallic and non-metallic materials and conditions of controlled control of their properties. Analysis of optimized processing conditions in terms of the achieved set of mechanical, physico-chemical and chemical properties. Conditions for their effective technical use and their operational reliability.Perspectives of further development of progressive technical materials.
