MATSE 472 Metallurgy Laboratory II (1)

This course provides a range on laboratory experiences ranging from metals processing to alloy properties. A primary course objective is to demonstrate important relationships between the processing, microstructure, and properties of metals. The individual laboratory practices include the following: powder metallurgy, metal casting, mechanical property testing and analysis, welding and weldment characterization, non-destructive testing, failure analysis and fractography, computational processing design, corrosion, and aqueous processing. The course requires hands-on involvement by the students in the design and planning of experiments as well as data acquisition and analysis of results. Students work in groups, and written reports are the primary basis for grading.
