Specific course information

This course is focused on two closely related subjects: materials engineering and manufacturing processes. The fundamental concepts of materials engineering will give students the knowledge about the microstructure, types and mechanical properties of materials that would help them decide on the material best suited for a particular application; also, those concepts would help determine the tests to monitor quality and the effects of process on the properties of materials. With the subject of manufacturing processes, students will learn how to identify the best process to manufacture a desired product, the state of the materials to be used and the properties of those materials in the end product.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To identify and apply the fundamental concepts of materials.
  • To identify and apply the concepts about the properties of materials.
  • To explain the changes that metallic materials suffer upon cooling from the liquid state or upon heating or cooling from the solid state.
  • To describe the manufacturing processes and select the most appropriate for a particular need.
  • To describe the properties, features and manufacturing processes of polymers, ceramics and composites.
