Students learn the atomic, molecular, crystalline, and amorphous structures of metals, ceramics, and polymers and the dependence of material physical properties upon these structures. The laboratory (ENGR 3015) provides the opportunity for hands-on exploration of materials properties ranging from heat treating, tensile testing and metallographic inspection of various metals to Bragg scattering of x rays in crystals to diffusion of gases through metals to measurement of photovoltaic cell efficiencies.
