ECES220 - Introduction to Materials Engineering


Credits: 2

This course is an introduction to the structure and properties of solids commonly used in engineering applications. The emphasis of the course is metallurgy; however, polymers, composites and advanced materials applications are also incorporated. Consideration of the effects of composition (alloying), mechanical and thermal treatments are addressed. Failures of materials including fatigue, creep, thermal shock and corrosion, as well as methods of protection are detailed in the context of marine engineering applications.

Prerequisites: PHYS 110  and CHEM 100 
Corequisite: ECES 221
