Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB
This is an introductory course on the relationship of the internal structure of materials to their properties. Topics include crystalline structure, imperfections, phases and phase diagrams, steels and non-ferrous alloys, polymers, ceramics, semiconductors, and corrosion. Students will apply the concepts in laboratory activities and will use typical materials testing equipment and analysis techniques. This course is required for CRC's A.S.-Engineering, Civil/Mechanical Engineering option degree, and many university engineering B.S. degrees.
