ARCH 4580.80 - Materials Systems and Productions

The goal of Material Systems and Production is threefold: to develop a fundamental understanding of materials through first principles, classification, production, and impacts, to develop models for material properties and testing, and to develop criteria to make reasoned choices for the implementation of materials in the built environment. Students will engage directed research projects with the intent of opportunistically identifying intrinsic material properties, exploiting production-forming logics and developing a prototype detail assembly for testing.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
