Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course uses teaching methods in form of Lecture - 2 teaching hours per week. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The aim is a semestral work included the proposal of manufacturing of particular plastic part. The clasified credit is given after fullfil of partial works and final project.
Language of instruction
Basic properties of plastics
Definition of problems
Colelction of information and running consultations
Methods and principles of plastics part design
The subject of the lecture-course is given to design the products made from plastics, otherwise the connexion between technologic and economic possibilities of plastic proccesing techniques. The target is ability to define material requirements a ability to create an own design of problem part solution for given application.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Attendancy in lecture is recomended. Student elaborate some partial exersices dealed for example with shrinkage by injection molding etc. Finally student prepare individual project of new design of plastics product.
