I. This course deals with fundamentals of materials science in order to understand the relationships between the structures/state and physical properties of materials.
II. 1. Mechanical properties, 2. Thermal properties
Materials science is an academic framework which seeks to analyze the macroscopic properties of materials from a microscopic viewpoint of internal structure, and to develop new materials and to investigate the best way to select materials based on such knowledge. The basis of it is to comprehend materials from an atomic and molecular level to the applied level as a final product in a wide and continuous viewpoint. This course explains the thermal and mechanical properties of metals, organic materials, and inorganic materials from microscopic and macroscopic points of view, with the goal of fostering a base for thinking in terms of materials science.
