Main teaching areas are:

Metallic materials; basics about the microstructural influence on the properties of materials.

Materials selection; methodology to find the best material for componetns and products.

Eco-design; tools to reduce the environmental impact by proper selection of materials, choice of processing methods andanlyse of the life cycle of components and products.

Surface engineering; the influence of surface microstructure on material properties as wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
