    The goalStudents will adopt principles of materials science as multidisciplinary science with the aim to establish interdependence between structure and properties of all classes of engineering materials
    The outcomeThe student adopts the capability to recognize, connect and apply existing relations among structure, thermodynamic and kinetic parameters and properties of materials. By accomplishing the course students acquires theoretical basis about interconnection between structure and properties of all classes of materials for further studies in the field of materials science and engineering.
