Aim of course The program includes familiarizing with the fundamentals of thermodynamics being the basis of all tecnical branches including textiles. It is impossible to understand technological processes without knowing fundamental sciences.Based on essential principles, the aim is to facilitate the subsequent study and the work in engineering practice.
