      The goalIntroduction to the basic principles of the science of sintering, impact of the process of synthesis of their structure and properties of sintered materials. Acquiring engineering knowledge required to independent performing engineering calculations of parameters for obtaining various types of powders and sintered parts, exploring experimental techniques and independent research, control and governance of processes in sintered metallurgy, further training in the field of powder metallurgy and sintered materials.
      The outcomeThe course provides the necessary knowledge to understand the process of powder metallurgy, students training to plan experimental studies, modeling and simulation of the sintering process, new technologies and methods of obtaining the material properties with predicted properties. Engineering knowledge necessary for further development and experimental activities in the field of obtaining special powders and composite powders recycling and environmental protection.
