Learning outcomes
The aim is to acquaint students with knowledge of metallurgy and metal processing. The main focus is on metal materials, their treatment and related operations. The principles of thermal treatment together with areal and volume forming will be presented, too. The course also includes the introduction of basic material tests.
Students will acquire knowledge of metallurgy and metal processing. They will dispose by knowldge of foundry, related operations and principles of heat treatment of metals (sheet and bulk forming). Among others, they will have an overview of basic material tests.
no requirements

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam, Seminar work

During the semester, 3 seminar works with solution of 3 examples that correspond to the type of examination. Solving of examples required both in the form of a written solution and in the form of a Matlab program. Solution procedure and results checked by the tutor. Understanding of the topic within the frame given by the plan. Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes: credit: attendance of seminars, min 75%, passing the test to min 75%. exam: passing the test min 75%, proof of knowledge at the oral exam min 75%.
