Ceramic Materials

 

Ceramic materials have been widely used in several crucial engineering applications such as artificial teeth and bones in biomedical industry, high-temperature shielding in space crafts, solar cells in electronics, gas sensors in chemical industry, glasses in architecture, ceramic matrix composites in aircrafts, and structural materials in civil engineering. The minor in Ceramic Materials comprises fundamentals of processing and properties of traditional and technical ceramic materials. In this respect, this program is intended to serve for all fields of engineering as well as to other disciplines such as architecture, industrial design, chemistry, and physics. The prospective students for this program will get the chance of acquainting themselves top-notch experimental and theoretical aspects of thermal mechanical, electronic, magnetic, and optical properties of ceramic materials.

MINOR PROGRAM  

in

Structural Materials

 

Materials subjected to static, thermal, dynamic (impact) and cyclic loads are classified as structural materials. These load-bearing materials are crucial to almost all fields of engineering as well as to other disciplines such as architecture, industrial design, chemistry and physics. In that Structural Materials minor program comprises fundamentals of structure-property relationships and basic understanding of four major classes of materials (i.e. metals, ceramics, polymers and composites) for structural applications. Structural Materials minor program aims to provide an introduction to field of materials science by building a notion of materials structure and property relationship. The prospective students for this program will get the chance of acquainting themselves top-notch experimental and theoretical aspects of engineering materials.
