Suggestions on
Preparation and
The topic is relating to the previous class topic. That is, the topic will overlap the previous one. This indicates that reviewing is important.   
Grading Method Grade is evaluated on the basis of the final exam, intermediate exam, and papers.  
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message Enjoy properties and functions of materials. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
