      The goalIntroducing of the process-technological aspects of the valuable components recovery from waste by-products and raw materials. Acquiring engineering knowledge necessary for further training in the field of recycling of metals, non-metals, polymers, composites and engineering materials.
      The outcomeStudents can independently monitor engineering, material and energy flows in recycling technologies. The expertise needed to continue theoretical and experimental activities of recycling and the selection of NDT or combination of technological solutions.
