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.

Material Processing course deals with the detailed study of the material processing. I found the course suitable for materials engineers either working in research in the materials and development field or to increase the knowledge in the area of materials processing. The lecture delivery and content is also very good.

I enjoyed learning different phase diagrams and how to get different phase composition calculations done.I must say the professor way of delivering lecture is immensely good.Looking to enroll for other courses in the future too.Thanks Georgia tech for now
