Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The subject is focused on overview and development of new materials suitable for subsequent processing in an industry and wood engineering. The aim is to provide a knowledge about chemical composition, inner structure and properties of the basic groups of materials. Also a method of material with required properties development will be presented.
