ENGR 412 Properties of Materials

Units: 4

Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB

Prerequisite: CHEM 400 and PHYS 411 with grades of "C" or better

Transferable: CSU; UC

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.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

SLO1: RELATE THE PROPERTIES OF A MATERIAL TO ITS STRUCTURE ON A SUB-MICROSCOPIC SCALE.
