Recommended Previous Knowledge:
Basics: chemistry / physics / material science
Students can use the knowledge of plastics and define the necessary testing and analysis.
They can explain the complex relationships structure-property relationship and
the interactions of chemical structure of the polymers, including to explain neighboring contexts (e.g. sustainability, environmental protection).
Students are capable of
- using standardized calculation methods in a given context to mechanical properties (modulus, strength) to calculate and evaluate the different materials.
- For mechanical recycling problems selecting appropriate solutions and sizing example Stiffness, corrosion resistance.
- arrive at work results in groups and document them.
- provide appropriate feedback and handle feedback on their own performance constructively.
Students are able to,
- assess their own strengths and weaknesses
- assess their own state of learning in specific terms and to define further work steps on this basis guided by teachers.
- assess possible consequences of their professional activity.
