Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: The content of the lecture is presented in the form of a multimedia presentation in combination with a classic blackboard lecture enriched with shows related to the issues presented.
  • Seminar classes: The basis for seminar classes is the multimedia and oral presentation led by students. Another important element of education are the answers to the questions raised, as well as the students' discussion of the presented content.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

In order to complete the seminar class, a presentation on a chosen subject must be given and the student must take part in a discussion, which will be positively graded. Additionally the student need to be present on at least 75 % of classes.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Students participate in lectures learning the next teaching content according to the subject syllabus. Students should keep asking questions and clarifying doubts. Audiovisual registration of the lecture requires the teacher's consent.
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Students present in the group forum the topic indicated by the lecturer and participate in the discussion on this topic. Both the substantive value of the presentation and the so-called soft skills.
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final grade is the seminar classes grade.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Each case will be discussed individually.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Basic knowladge of materials science, solid state physics/chemistry.
