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 second 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....

Very informative and descriptive course. It encourages a person to do self calculations. Lecture and the material available are all very well explained. Would love to take similar courses.

A very good introductory course that provides a good qualitative and basic quantitative idea regarding phase transformations ranging from 1 component to multiple components. This is very essential for one to understand the conditions required to get the material of your interest to desired phase.

Some quiz questions ask about material that is not discussed until later lectures. Some quiz questions are vaguely worded. Course seems under construction - many later lectures unquizzed?

O curso é fantastico, a linguagem do professsors é bem clara e objetiva.

Como eu não sou nativo na língua inglesa, não tive muitas dificuldades de entender o professor, as legendas em português ajudaram bastante em muitos casos, só gostaria que o tempo entre as atividades fossem maior pois eu tive que buscar em outros locais mais exemplos para poder concluir as atividades.

Recomendo muito o curso.

I want thank Coursera for providing me financial aid. I am very glad to be a part of Georgia Institute of Technology by completing this course. This course will help me in my near future 😊. Although i am an Indian belonging from bengali medium school i never faced any problem with the language or type of teaching by the professor.

Thank you sir, thank you very from Kolkata, India.
