    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is well taught by a more than knowledgeable professor, who has more than 10 years of experience in the manufacturing industry which provides valuable insight to how things work in our future careers, and can give examples that relate to each of the students individual majors.

    Course highlights:

    A couple highlights of the class were the process steps to make and quench harden steels, the differences in microstructure, how to designate them, how mechanical properties differ based on different alloying elements and how they should be chosen for applications based on those properties. Secondly, the types of ceramics, how they are created, and their advantages over steels and their mechanical properties and how they are used in manufacturing industry.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You would need the book, take meticulous notes, re-write your notes and make flash cards for tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course Because it has a professor that has more than ten years of experience in the materials science field, and can add an application from your personal major as an example when explaining concepts. Secondly It provides a very detailed and well rounded foundation in materials and how they preform or need to in a variety of applications. Lastly it has a lab so that you can see, touch and experience different concepts, and properties first hand.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were tensile strength and how alloying elements in steel affect them and their other mechanical properties. The process steps to make steel and to quench harden steels, the changes in microstructure, what each step does and what it is for, and how it affects the uses and mechanical properties of the steels after the processes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest re-writing their notes and to make flash cards.
