This experiment course intends to learn about the processing and evaluation of properties of sensitivity ceramics materials deeply correlated with human life. After the fundamental experiments to get the knowledge on the concepts of these materials in their usage and experimental techniques, the students make the plan for the advanced experiments and carry out. Through the organization of experimental data and summarization, the students show them in the presentation, and discuss the science and technology about these ceramics. In addition, the student can have the lectures on the safety in the experiment, skills on the presentation, computer operations, and analysis procedures of data.
This course aims to master the fundamentals on originality, important issues, planning ability, executive ability, and ability of expression.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 50 minutes preparing for class and another 50 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Experiment textbook is provided.
Textbook of "Seramikku kiso-koza1 seramikku jikkenn(Uchida-rokaku-ho)" is recommended as the refeence book. Printed documents are distributed.
Students are requested to join and carry out all the experiments, and do the proposed tasks to judge their knowledge on the experiments and ceramics.
Students are recommended to learn about the fundamental knowlegde on ceramic materials in 1st or 2nd year.
The lecture will be conducted with the mixture of online and offline in 2022, so please note the actual lecture contents may not match with the syllabus.
