    The goalThe goal of this course is to give theoretical and practical knowledge about engineering materials in order to enable the students to use them for production of process equipment, constructions, tools and packaging, as well as to teach to students the methods for structure characterization, physical-mechanical properties testing and production conditions.
    The outcomeAfter the completion of studding in this course students will be enabled to use principles of materials science and engineering in following situations: ; • Characterization of structure and physical-mechanical properties of materials ; • Analysis of defects and failure of materials due to corrosion, oxidation, dynamic and static mechanical load at low and high temperatures as well as to eliminate those influences on materials properties. ; • Optimally chose material and production process ; • Principles of materials recycling.
