Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

1) Student will be able to describe the standard test methods and the procedures in the field of materials engineering. 2) Student will have knowledge on how to create the standards at the national, European and international level. 3) Student will be able to elaborate an instruction for the execution of standardized tests of mechanical properties of materials. 4) Students will be able to define the basic activities of testing laboratories. 5) Student will be able to determine the uncertainty of testing and evaluation of uncertainties.

Teaching methods



The lectures deal with the evaluation of the quality of products and semi-products related to the testing of their material characteristics as the whole complex immediately downstream activities such as testing and calibration procedures and their validation, uncertainty testing and evaluation, metrology and calibration of measuring and test equipment to the accreditation of testing and calibration laboratories.
