Method of calculating the final grade:

All course activities are in English. The first assignment starts immediately on April and involves writing and emailing to Prof. Tom Troczynski short CV (“Resume”) including photo and short statement of previous experiences with ceramic coatings (this assignment is worth 3% of the course mark).

The technical part of the course starts on-line and will continue at AGH in 3 Modules in 4 days of intensive ~6hrs activities usually on May. There is also 0.5hr meeting (“consultation”) of groups of 2 students with Prof. Tom Troczynski, to clarify all questions/issues related to the course materials. Students performance and activity during the meetings will be marked (worth up to 10% of the course mark). The 1.5hr written exam (45 multiple-choice questions, worth 45% of the course mark) is at the end of the course. The exam results will be reviewed immediately after the exam.

The on-line course component will require students to respond to Prof. Tom Troczynski with short answers related to the Introductory Reading Assignments (IRA) for the Modules 1,2,3. The IRA assignments (chapters of the textbook “Ceramic Materials – Science and Engineering” (CMSE) by C. Carter and M. Norton, 2007 Springer Science) will be delivered to students by e-mail. All on-line assignments contribute 18% to the course mark (5% per technical assignments + 3% for the CV).

Students will also receive all materials for the course compiled on a CD, including reading assignments (IRA, ARA), copies of lectures and additional reading materials.

Each of the 3 Modules includes:

(1) Introductory Reading Assignment (IRA) and Advanced Reading Assignment (ARA)
(2) Entry quiz EQ, individual (7% crs mark) and team (2%): 10 Multiple Choice (MC) questions on IRA
(3) 3 hrs of lectures (A, B, C): expand on the topics covered by IRA and ARA. The lectures will be delivered through MS Power Point presentations (copies delivered to students by email/on CD).
(4) ~1 hr of tutorial: free-form discussion to review/clarify the IRA, ARA and the lecture materials.

The Modules topics are as follows:

Module 1: Thick-Film Coatings by melting-solidification (thermal spray)
Module 2: Thin Film Coatings from vapor (PVD, CVD)
Module 3: Thin Film Coatings from solution (sol-gel, electrochemical)
Module 4: Surface Modification Techniques (for self study only; NOT part of the course or the exam)

Marking: The course final mark includes the marks from the on-line assignments (18%), Day 1,2,3 entry quizzes individual (21%) and team (6%), activity/performance during the Day 4 consultation sessions (10%), and the Day 5 exam. The final exam (45 multiple choice questions) covers all aspects of the Modules 1, 2, 3 in particular IRA, lectures, and the essentials of ARA and is worth 45% of the final course mark.
