Materials processing, characterization, computational and data analysis techniques in materials science. Focus on processing-structure-property relationships.
- Electrical characterization techniques
- Structural characterization techniques
- Electron beam analysis of materials
- Thermal analysis of materials
The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of the important thermodynamic and kinetic factors involved in different materials processing techniques.
- Apply different materials characterization techniques with demonstrated understanding of the advantages and limitations of each technique.
- Demonstrate the ability to apply computer-based analytical methods to experimental data sets to obtain information about the parameters of interest and experimental errors.
- Demonstrate effective written and oral communication techniques for the purpose of disseminating technical information.
- Synthesize all of the course material and experimental results into a cohesive research paper. (For graduate students only)
