Abstract

This course introduces you to the materials science and engineering of metals, ceramics, polymers, and electronic materials. Topics include: bonding, crystallography, imperfections, phase diagrams, properties and processing of materials. Case studies are used when appropriate to exemplify the lecture topics. Related courses are mostly focussed on Mechanical Behavior.

Objectives:

To develop an awareness of materials and their properties that, as an engineer, you must rely on in the future.

To introduce basic ideas, nomenclature, and testing of materials.

To reveal relationships amongst   processing -> structure -> properties -> performance.

To provide some background in Materials Science (structure – property relationships)

To introduce Materials Engineering(designing set of properties based on these relationships).

To develop ideas regarding materials selection and design.
