ENGR 1600 - Materials Science


Introduction to the scientific principles that dictate the structure and properties of engineering materials, including metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers. Physical properties of materials (mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical) are discussed in terms of the underlying bonding and structure, spanning multiple length scales from atomic packing to micron scale defects, in practical engineering materials. Throughout the course, the material behaviors are understood from the viewpoint of thermodynamics and kinetics.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: CHEM 1100.

When Offered: Fall, spring, and summer terms annually.



Cross Listed: CHEM 1600, PHYS 1600, and ISCI 1600. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and CHEM 1600, PHYS 1600, or ISCI 1600

Credit Hours: 4

Contact, Lecture or Lab Hours: 5 contact hours
