Description:
COURSE GOALS: The aim of the course is to introduce students to the results of the research in the field of surfaces and nanostructures. Students are required to follow computational modeling of surfaces and nanostructures using the NanoHub portal (''a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, supported by the NSF USA''), as well as to prepare and present an adequate outreach seminar.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AT THE LEVEL OF THE PROGRAMME:
Upon completing the degree, students will be able to:
1. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
1.1. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the fundamental laws of classical and modern physics
1.3. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the most important physics theories (logical and mathematical structure, experimental support, described physical phenomena
1.8. integrate physics and chemistry content knowledge with knowledge of pedagogy, psychology, didactics and teaching methods courses
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.1. identify and describe important aspects of a particular physical phenomenon or problem
2.4. recognize and follow the logic of arguments, evaluate the adequacy of arguments and construct well supported arguments
2.5. use mathematical methods to solve standard physics problems
2.10. create a learning environment that encourages active engagement in learning and promotes continuing development of pupils' skills and knowledge
3. MAKING JUDGEMENTS
3.1. develop a critical scientific attitude towards research in general, and in particular by learning to critically evaluate arguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data
3.5. demonstrate professional integrity and ethical behavior in work with pupils and colleagues
4. COMMUNICATION SKILLS
4.2. present complex ideas clearly and concisely
4.3. present their own research results at education or scientific meetings
4.4. use the written and oral English language communication skills that are essential for pursuing a career in physics, chemistry and education
5. LEARNING SKILLS
5.1. search for and use professional literature as well as any other sources of relevant information
5.2. remain informed of new developments and methods in physics, chemistry and education
5.3. develop a personal sense of responsibility for their professional advancement and development

LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
Upon completing the course Physics of surfaces and nanostructures students will be able:
1. To define surfaces, nanoparticles (clusters), nanotubes, nanowires, interfaces, and adsorbates
2. To describe surfaces and nanostructures of the most important materials
3. To describe the most important experimental and theoretical studies in this field
4. To describe the most important computational methods in studies of surfaces and nanostructures
