Assesment methods:
Two written tests will be conducted on the exercises during the semester. The results of tests will be taken into account in the final evaluation during the exam. The number of credits for the student classification from A to FX corresponds to the STU internal regulations.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student will acquire the basic knowledge about the technologies of production of the main types of technical materials. The student will know the raw materials and basic construction characteristics of the technological equipment for the production of materials. The student will know the main parameters of technological processes of production of technical materials. He/she will acquire the physical and chemical fundamentals of processes carried out in these devices and will know the basic chemical compositions, structural characteristics, phase compositions as well as the macroscopic dimensional and shape characteristics of the products of primary materials production. The student will obtain the basic knowledge about the influence of production technologies and their parameters on the mechanical, technological and utility properties of the main types of materials used in the technical practice.
