The introduction to materials course will give you a basic understanding of the relationship between, processing, structure and properties of some of the most common engineering materials in the categories of metals, polymers and ceramics.
This module provides an introduction to the principles of microscopy and spectroscopy.
An understanding of the mechanical properties of many engineering materials. We study the test methodologies and standards developed to ensure that materials can be understood and safely deployed in a range of in-service scenarios. This course combines both classroom material along with practical hands on testing of real specimens in commercial test house.
