EGR-111 - Intro Materials Science and Engr

3 credits

A survey of the materials of engineering and the atomic, molecular, and crystal phenomena responsible for their properties. The unifying theme is that the structures of materials determine their properties. Materials considered include alloys, semiconductors, polymers, and ceramics. Homework and tests are designed to build technical vocabulary and facility with tabulated and graphics data in solving basic materials analysis and design problems.
