Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
The course is focused on basic knowledge in the field of materials science and engineering. This is an introductory course, during which the student will gain theoretical knowledge about the basic concepts in connection with technical materials (material properties - strength, modulus of elasticity, hardness, toughness and methods of testing). The student actively applies the acquired knowledge during exercises on specific problem examples from practice.
The student understands the basic concepts of material science. He knows material properties, such as tensile strength, tensile modulus, hardness, impact toughness. The student understands how these properties are tested and what values are of the order of metallic, polymeric, natural and ceramic materials.
The student understands the basic concepts of high school physics.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

The student actively participates in seminars during the semester and successfully passes the exam.
