10. Course Goals (acquired competencies): Gaining knowledge on different types of materials, their basic properties and possibilities of application. The objective is to get acquainted to the conductive, semi-conductive, dielectric, magnetic and superconductive materials and other special materials with application in electrical engineering and information technologies.
11. Course Syllabus: Introduction to materials science. Electrical and thermal conductivity of the materials. Periodical system of chemical elements. Zone theory and crystals. Conductors-simple model and macroscopic properties. Classification of conductive materials. Application of conductive materials. Semi-conductors, conductance processes and macroscopic properties. Elementary semi-conductors and compounds. Semi-conductors applications. Dielectrics and isolators. Energy losses. Dielectric strength. Survey and classification of dielectric materials. Applications of dielectric materials. Magnetism, basic terminology. Magnetic hysteresis. Dia-, para- and ferromagnetism. Classification on soft and hard magnetic materials, properties and applications. Materials superconductive characteristics-simple model and macroscopic properties. Application of superconductors. Special technologies in electrical engineering and information technologies.
12. Learning methods: Combined study methods: ex-cathedra lectures supported by presentations, home works, projects and tutorials.

20. Forms of assessment

During the semester, two partial written exams are provided (at the middle and at the end of the semester, lasting 90 minutes), tests that are conducted during the classes and a test from laboratory exercises (after the end of the exercises). For students who have passed the partial exams and the laboratory exercises test, a final oral exam can be conducted through the presentation and defense of project work (duration 60 minutes). The final grade includes the points from the partial exams, the tests and the final oral exam.

In the planned exam sessions, a written exam is taken (duration 120 minutes). For students who have passed the written exam and the test of laboratory exercises, a final oral exam is conducted through the presentation and defense of project work (duration 60 minutes). The points from the written exam, the tests and the final oral exam, and points for regular lectures attendance, are included in the final grade.

The student should prepare and defend a project
