Basic lecture classes (18 x 45 min). Depending on the target group’s profile and research interests, classes will be carried out on topics related to the discipline chosen by the student: computer science, chemistry, physics, or material science and engineering.
DISCIPLINE – MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
The Vinci Summer School in the field of Materials Science and Engineering will give participants the opportunity to dive into the world of materials. They will find out where, why, and how materials work. The students will be provided with basic knowledge about materials (metals, polymers, liquid crystals), their structures, properties, and materials testing methods. They will also learn how the properties of materials can be tailored by selecting their phase and chemical composition or through heat and plastic treatment. They will learn how to obtain modern porous materials for implantology and make such material with one of the research groups. Some students, during their workshops, will even produce a high-entropy alloy (HEA) using arc melting methods. Most importantly, the basic and advanced techniques of testing materials will be demonstrated during Vinci Summer School, such as electron microscopy, X-ray, and spectroscopic methods. What is more, participants will be able to conduct research themselves using the high-tech equipment available at our University.
The school’s program includes 76 hours of classes in English with the following elements:
