Introduction to Materials Science

COURSE CODE: EGR 203

CREDITS: 3

PREREQUISITES: Prerequisites: CHM 101, or CHM 113, or CHM 121.

A study of the fundamental characteristics of engineering materials including metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. Topics will include a thorough analysis of the response of crystalline materials to mechanical stress and thermal treatment and the selection of materials for mechanical properties. Specific emphasis will be given to understanding the relationship between microstructure and mechanical behavior of materials. Prerequisites: CHM 101, or CHM 113, or CHM 121.
