Annotation Subject is designed for academic studies for master’s degree in engineering and manufacturing technology program. Subject is offered for students for acquiring the material structure formation mechanisms of materials and alloy compositions, as well as the properties of the interconnections. The course deals with metal reinforcement methods: mechanical hardening and provides an insight into the alloy and heat treatment. Subject provides gain knowledge of heat treatment technology and equipment..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Ensure the implementation of engineering master's study programs. Give the opportunity to learn the interconnection between material structure and properties. To do research and make rational choice of material structures and processing instruments. To guarantee learning outcomes and provide the necessary skills and competence acquisition.
