Have you ever wondered why ceramics are hard and brittle while metals tend to be ductile? Why some materials conduct heat or electricity while others are insulators? Why adding just a small amount of carbon to iron results in an alloy that is so much stronger than the base metal? In this course, you will learn how a material’s properties are determined by the microstructure of the material, which is in turn determined by composition and the processing that the material has undergone.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MATERIAL BEHAVIOR
WE ARE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE COURSE VERY CLEARLY. HENCE WE CAN GAIN THE KNOWLEDGE OF MATERIAL BEHAVIOR. AS A BEGINNER WE CAN CHOOSE THIS COURSE AND LEARN THINGS.
Very interesting topics and provides a good introduction to Materials science. Equations used could be explained in more detail.
To whom concern.
The whole of course is fantastic , I have learnt too much about scince engineering.
Nevertheless, I would have liked to have more practical examples.
This course is very much informative and I learned so many basic concepts which are related to actual behavior of different materials.
