Hours & Credits
OverviewThe course covers: stoichiometry, atomic and molecular structure, states of matter, equilibrium, oxidation and reduction, electrochemistry; an introduction to organic chemistry and polymers; microstructure and structure-property relationships of the main types of engineering materials (metals, ceramics, polymers and composites); micromechanisms of elastic and plastic deformation; fracture mechanisms for ductile, brittle, creep and fatigue modes of failure in service; corrosion; metal forming by casting and wrought processes; phase equilibria of alloys; microstructural control by thermomechanical processing and application to commercial engineering materials.Laboratory work includes experiments on mechanical testing, cast and recrystallised structures, and fracture.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
