Aims of the course:The basic aim is to extend the education of future engineers in the field of protection of materials against corrosion by the growing manufacturing requirements for quality, reliability and durability of products in constant production costs for all types of installations. To prepare future graduates to real psychological problems encountered in the degradation of materials and in solving production problems in engineering practice due to corrosion degradation of structural materials.
Students will acquire advanced knowledge in the field of study of corrosion protection of theoretical understanding and practical knowledge.
Graduates of this course are also able to apply knowledge both cognitive and practical, they are able to independently supervise complex technical or professional activities and take taking responsibility for their decisions.
