Learning Outcomes

The course Advanced Surface Engineering concentrates in modern surface engineering technologies and coating materials of the latest developments. After having the expertise and experience from the course MOL-53247 Coatings and Surface Treatments the student can upgrade the knowledge and expertises to deeper and higher level by studying the present course. The contents of the course are related to the latest academic level research including the research of our own university. The topics include the relationships between processing, structure, properties and performances of advanced surface engineering technologies, e.g. thermal spray technology, advanced weld surfacing, thin film technologies, and various surface modification technologies. This course contributes to the following learning outcomes: - In-depth understanding of modern surface engineering processes - In-depth understanding of modern coating materials and their properties - Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering and scientific problem solving in th field of modern surface engineering - Fluent application of research methods for scientific research and solving of research questions - Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes for development of advanced coatings and surface treatments - Effective oral and written scientific communication in professional forums. Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to: - Understand the basic principles of advanced surface engineering processes and coating materials on a nano, micro and macro scale, and be able to relate the coating material structures to the coating performances - Use coating materials processing, structure, properties and performance research results and obtained expertise and apply these to make decisions in coating material and deposition process selection. - Be able to select appropriate coating deposition processes for advanced surface engineering applications. - To have relevant background skill for academic level research of materials and methods related to advanced surface engineering.
