Certificate in Materials Science - Materials Engineering MATL 3500   Materials Engineering
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course correlates properties of engineering materials with their structure. Laboratory objectives include preparation of reports in publication format and illustration of lecture material. Basic concepts of crystallography, chemical bonding and binary phase diagrams are introduced. These are used to describe properties of metallic and nonmetallic materials and how these may be controlled by engineers. Materials discussed include ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys, ceramics, composites and semiconductors.
FORMAT:
  • Lecture
