About the Course

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. This is the first of three Coursera courses that mirror the Introduction to Materials Science class that is taken by most engineering undergrads at Georgia Tech. The aim of the course is to help students better understand the engineering materials that are used in the world around them. This first section covers the fundamentals of materials science including atomic structure and bonding, crystal structure, atomic and microscopic defects, and noncrystalline materials such as glasses, rubbers, and polymers....

Material Behavior is a key subject for material studies and also very important for the mechanical engineering career. This course is very helpful and very easy to understand the hole concepts.

The course was excellent. A lot of in-depth material, beyond even what I remember from college. Coverage of polymer systems in addition to the usual metals was very nice, and the

A great and very informative course! Thank you! Some known mistakes (-> discussed in the forum) should be corrected though; especially those very annoying ones in the quizzes where correct answers are marked as incorrect and incorrect answers have to be selected to pass the quiz. Sometimes information to pass all quiz questions is missing in the slides of the lecture. However, most of the times, the answer can easily be found out by some additional source (literature, internet etc.).

Gives brief understanding of almost every aspect Materials engineering. Effort is required from the side of student to understand the concept wholly. Many complicated topics are dealt with with relative ease and from basics.

A very organized and well guided course. However, the contents are fairly difficult for a pre-university students.

Pretty good teacher. Easy words for not native-speakers. German subtles would be great.

After week 2 it gets very hard for students that do not study Engineering. But it is still interesting to learn about material behavior.
