CHE*410*10 Description

Materials Science

Our lives are influenced by all types of materials in transportation, housing, clothing, communication, recreation, and food production. The development on the ability to use existing materials, produce, manipulate, and select new materials suitable in many technologies that make our existance more comfortable. This course depicts relationships between the processing of a material, its structure, and finally its performance based on its properties in terms of the design, production, and utilization of the material. The overall goal of this course is to become familiar with the selection process that scientists and engineers use when designing a suitable material at a reasonable cost with minimal environmental impact. Three hours of lecture each week. Prerequisite: Chemistry 305. (Offered Spring: in rotation with Chemistry 310) Student must have taken CHE*305 or CHE*306
