Course description and aims

[Description]
In this course, the instructor covers various characteristics of materials from a microscopic and macroscopic point of view.
Specifically, the instructor lectures on the evaluation method of material characteristics, the material-strength, crystal structure, dislocation, equilibrium phase diagram, and characteristics and applications of practical steels, non-ferrous materials, and non-metal-materials.

[Aim]
Understanding the basic nature of necessary materials when manufacturing a machine and a building is indispensable.
Choosing materials based on knowledge about material characteristics is necessary in designing machines.
The aim of this course is to have students obtain fundamental knowledge of materials which are necessary for mechanical engineers.

Student learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to acquire basic knowledge about the basic properties of materials which are necessary for manufacturing machines and mechanical structures. In addition, students will gain an understanding of the characteristics of materials such as steel & iron, nonferrous metals, and non-metal materials.

Course taught by instructors with work experience

Applicable How instructors' work experience benefits the course
Instructors who have experience working at material manufacturer company will educate them so that they can learn a wide range of practical knowledge on the importance of the fundamentals of materials science and its applications, including experience in the company.
