    The course aims to transmit the knowledge to relate the processing techniques, the structure, and the properties with the behavior of the materials commonly used in industrial applications. After the definition, analysis and evaluation of the physical-mechanical properties of the materials, the basic techniques of their production, shaping and transformation are revealed.

      COMMENTS:

      • The Final Grade of the subject will be obtained by means of the following formula:

        • 0,4 (Grade Unit I) + 0,4 (Grade Unit II) + Continuous Evaluation Grade (maximum 2 points).

        • The Grade of the Continuous Evaluation will be saved for the September Call for all those students who do not pass the Subject in the February Call. Neither of the two Units will be saved for later courses.

      Part-time students COMMENTS:

      • In general, the Evaluation of part-time students will be based on what is established for this purpose in the Evaluation Regulations of the University of Cantabria. In any case, the unique circumstances of each student who is in this situation will be assessed individually.
