Course Description

 

This course is for anyone wanting to acquire an overview of materials science and engineering. It is taught at postgraduate level so will be of maximum benefit to delegates with industrial experience of materials and/or degree-qualified engineers, chemists and physicists who interact with materials scientists/engineers or who are moving into the materials area. There will be plenty of opportunities for discussion with lecturers and other delegates.

Topics covered include:  functional and structural properties of materials, characterisation techniques, surface engineering, joining, corrosion and materials selection.

 

The course will provide:

 

  • a systematic understanding of the different classes of engineering materials, their key properties and their principal application areas.
  • a knowledge of the major techniques used to characterise materials and evaluate their properties, including the quantitative treatment of data where appropriate.
  • an appreciation of the importance of processing-microstructure-property relationships through the use of illustrative examples.

 

Learning outcomes

 

On successful completion of the module, you will be able to:

 

  • describe and account for the structure, processing routes and key properties of the main classes of materials
  • explain how materials are characterised
  • construct processing-structure-property relationships for existing and potential materials.
  • assess the suitability of a material for a given purpose, using quantitative analyses where appropriate.
