Objectives: 

Main objectives of this course are to introduce the students to the fundamental nature, types, production processes, microstructural and mechanical properties, and uses of engineering materials; to standard testing methods of physical and mechanical properties of engineering materials; to concepts such as strength, durability, and cost in order to promote effective material selection as part of the overall design process. This course also aims to demonstrate to the students the main differences in behavior of various engineering materials through a series of laboratory experiments.

Software Usage:
