Course content
1. Structural (unalloyed) steels. 2. Tool steels. 3. Cast irons and casted steels. 4. High strength steels - grain refinement (micro alloing elements, process of grain formation and growth). 5. Automotive steels (TRIP, TWIP, MARAGING, apod.). 6. Special steels - boron steels, complex steels (CP steel), intersticial free (IF) steels - deep-drawing steels. 7. Special steels - creep resistant steels, steels for cryogenic applications, stainless steels and heat-resistant steels. 8. Special steels - stainless steels, heat-resistant steels. 9. Aluminium and aluminium alloys (able/unable of hardenability) 10. Magnesium and magnesium alloys (alloys for forming and casting) 11. Nickel, nickel alloys 12. Titanium and titanium alloys 13. Alloys with special properties (low melting point, radiation resistance, shape memory, precise resistance, superconductivity, etc.) 14. Composite materials with metal matrix.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The aim of the compulsory course is to familiarize with the spectrum of materials that are commonly used in engineering. Further, materials with specific properties and their use will be presented. The materials will be presented in terms of chemical composition, structure and mechanical properties that predetermine them for selected applications.
Learning outcomes of the course unit are knowledges about cast iron, steels, selected non-ferrous metals and their alloys, and alloys with special properties.
Prerequisites are knowledges from subjects dealing with materials at the bachelor level of study.
