Course description: Course objectives:
Introduction to basic forms of biological materials behavior. Introduction to basic forms of biological materials behavior and training for the selection of appropriate materials for use in medical design.

Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course:
No requirements.

Student responsibilities:
Attending lectures, presentations of selected topics

Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
Oral presentations of selected topics 85% and oral exam 15%

Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
Discussions on the current contents, respond to questions and determine the level of understanding of terms and possibilities of application in the design and medical purposes.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):

have knowledge of the principles and fundamentals of the living tissue physiology
analyze the conditions and need of incorporating biocompatible materials
know and distinguish the properties of available materials for medical design
assess the choice of materials according to the criterion of biocompatibility
recommend appropriate material for use in the medical design purpose
perform the synthesis of materials in the process of medical structure design
