Metallurgy and Materials Science

MET 102


Introduction to Materials Science (2-2) 3 Cr. Hrs.


Course Description

This course provides students with a basic introduction to materials science using the principles of science to study the nature of metallic and non-metallic materials used in most industries. Topics covered in the course include atomic structure; elements; states of matter; bonding; crystallization; and mechanical, chemical and physical properties of metallic, polymeric, ceramic and composite materials.

Prerequisites

(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)

  • None.

Course Competencies

Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Identify the four principle stages used in the scientific method of discovery.
  • Apply standard conversion formulas to convert units of measurement.
  • Explain the general atomic model.
  • Summarize how the elements serve as the building blocks for all engineering materials.
  • Explain the basic crystal structures common to most engineering materials.
  • Classify the three principle states of matter based upon chemical, physical and mechanical behavior.
  • Calculate the density of solid and liquid materials.
  • Investigate material selection criteria for a common application.
  • Demonstrate methods used for measuring mechanical properties including hardness and strength testing.
  • Demonstrate methods used for measuring physical properties including thermal conductivity and thermal expansion.
  • Demonstrate methods used for measuring corrosion behavior from exposure to salt fog.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of metallic materials.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of polymeric materials.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of ceramic materials.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of composite materials.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of magnetic and electronic materials.
  • Explore the mechanical, chemical and physical behavior of natural materials including wood and concrete.
  • Identify common non-destructive evaluation methods.
  • Identify common destructive evaluation methods.
