5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

The purpose of the academic discipline study. To provide students with a system of theoretical knowledge and practical skills on the basics of material, which using in civil (residential and public) and industrial buildings, their composition, structure, properties and application of different families of materials and relationship among them. To focuses on cement, concrete, steel, new waterproof materials, and the environment-friendly materials. To make the knowledge about materials for students more applicable, more substantial, and more novel

The place of academic discipline in the structural and logical scheme of study according to the educational program
