    The goalThe aim of this course is to enable students the introduction to characterization methods of ceramic and glass materials, methods of monitoring the kinetics of phase transformation process, structural and microstructural changes that occur during the processing of these materials. Introduction to the methods is necessary for successful development of the experimental part of the doctoral dissertation. ;
    The outcomeAfter successful completion of the course students are expected to master the theoretical knowledge in the field of ceramics and glass materials as well as the practical application of these methods.
    Contents of lecturesThe course introduces to the students the characterization methods of ceramic and glass materials, the starting compounds for their synthesis and methods for monitoring the mechanisms and kinetics of the processes occurring in ceramic and glass systems.
    Contents of exercisesWithin the exercises and individual work in writing the paper the students are provided to master the methods of characterization of ceramic and glass materials. ;
