      ConditionFor attendance: Fundamentals of materials engineering; for exam: The processing and application of ceramic materialsОблик условљености
      The goalThe aim of this course is to enable students to become familiar with the methods of ceramic, metal and polymer materials characterization, as well as the commonly used instrumental methods of chemical analysis of materials. The aim is also to learn about the methods for monitoring the microstructural and the structural changes that occur during the processing of these materials.
      The outcomeThe course introduces to the students the basic methods for the characterization of ceramic, metal and polymer materials and the raw materials and compounds for their synthesis. During the course, students will do the experimental exercise in the field of the materials characterization.
