MINOR PROGRAM(S) IN METALLURGICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING

Minor Program in Engineering Metals And Alloys

Materials are critical to all fields of engineering since design is often constrained by their limited availability. Furthermore, innovations in materials may lead to new design criteria and result in emergence of new products. Thus, most programs within the Faculty of Engineering involve one or two courses on Materials Science and Engineering. The metals and their alloys constitute still the most widely used family of engineering materials. The current program addresses students who want to further develop their understanding of engineering metals and alloys. Courses offered in this program emphasize the structure-property relationships as well as factors that affect the materials behavior in service.
