This course is an introduction to materials science, a field that describes the behavior of materials by utilizing principles of chemistry and physics to engineer new materials and predict their resultant properties. The course will focus on describing the microscopic physical and chemical structure of materials and relating that structure to the macroscopic thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. The course will also cover the connection between atomic/crystal structure and materials processing. 01/06/2020-03/21/2020 Lecture Monday, Wednesday 11:00AM - 12:20PM, Industrial Technology Center, Room I111 (more)...
