Course detail

Practical Materials Engineering on Industrial Artefacts

FSI-0MIAcad. year: 2018/2019

The seminar offers an insight in practical materials engineering by decomposing and analyzing industrial artefacts. By hands-on experience, the students learn how to apply basic principles of material science on the results they can see on samples prepared by classical materials engineering approaches.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Practical experience with material engineering analysis methods.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of material science, mathematics, chemistry and physics on the first year level is expected.
