Course abstract

Acquisition of the course of Wood Processing Technologies and Design promotes an understanding of the types of wood materials, wood processing technologies and their usability for manufacturing of design products. Aim of the course is to create conditions for the ability to construct and produce potentially demanded design wood products.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

• Knowledge - to classify and to explain the types of wood materials and methods of wood machining, to explain conceptions of the conformity assessment of wood materials and machining, and to discuss the substance of the wood processing and phenomena that characterize these processes.
• Skills - to construct wood products, to plan sequence of the technological processes and load, to check the suitability of technological possibilities of the wood materials, machines and cutting tools for reaching of target of the machining process and to analyses regularities of the wood processing.
• Competence - to develop and to evaluate technological processes of manufacturing of the wood products, to choose the materials, machines and cutting tools with the most appropriate parameters and to solve problems associated with designing of wood products and wood processing.
