MSE 209 - Introduction to the Science and Engineering of Materials


The collective properties of the materials in an engineering structure often dictate the feasibility of the design. Provides the scientific foundation for understanding the relations between the properties, microstructure, and behavior during use of metals, polymers, and ceramics. Develops a vocabulary for the description of the empirical facts and theoretical ideas about the various levels of structure from atoms, through defects in crystals, to larger scale morphology of practical engineering materials.
