Learning outcomes

After Functional Materials minor program student can:

  1. Explain solid state structure and phenomena, including mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical, thermal behaviour of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites
  2. Evaluate material properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, biomaterials and nanomaterials
  3. Design new materials and predict their behaviour
  4. Understand the engineering possibilities and limitations of new materials
