Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The goal of this subject is giving of basic survey and essence of production engineering technologies especially from the area of foundry industry and moulding of metal materials, most important and most widespread technologies by elaboration of metals. Part of this subject is description of advantages and disadvantages of single technologies and their examination from ecological, economic and technological angle. Simultaneously is given survey of basic ways of decoction and ways of protection of metal surfaces from corrosion incidence.

Orientation in engineering technologies and their capabilities Knowledge of the properties of manufactured and semi Knowledge of principles and methods of production possibilities of mutual confusion
