Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Group work
Learning outcomes
The course is focused on non-metallic technical materials and their processing and properties, with emphasis on polymeric materials, composites, wood and ceramics. During the lectures, the student will gain theoretical knowledge about the preparation, structure, morphology, processing and properties of plastics and composites. The student applies this acquired knowledge during seminars, which discuss and solve problem tasks in connection with the use of non-metallic materials in technical practice.
During the lectures, the student will gain theoretical knowledge about the preparation, structure, morphology, processing and properties of plastics and composites.
Prerequisites
The student understands the issues on which the previous course Material Science I was focused.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

The student actively participates in seminars and passes the exam.
