    Methods of teaching Course material consists of topics that are relevant for modern applications of materials. Physical basics of particular types of materials are elaborated, along with the concomitant technologies, and the importance of these materials in electrical engineering is emphasized. Some of the materials and technologies are dealt with through practical work, as part of the 6 laboratory assignments.
