Examination methods

Final exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. interpret basic types of engineering materials in electrical engineering

2. explain the structure of basic materials types in electrical engineering

3. explain the main mechanical, thermal, electrical and magnetic properties of electrical materials and basic testing methods

4. estimate the basic requirements during the selection of materials used in electrical engineering products

5. compare the basic applications of conductive, magnetic, dielectric and semiconductive materials

6. explain the connection between processing, structure and properties of technical materials
