MET 34800 / 4 Cr. (3 Class, 1 Lab)

This course gives an overview of the material families of metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites. Emphasis is placed on the structure, properties, and design selection for these materals for engineering applications. Problem-solving skills are developed in the areas of materials selection,e valuation, measurement, and testing. A laboratory component is included for hands-on experiences of exploring and testing properties of different families of materials, and selection of the materials for engineering applications.
